Before we get started, let's talk a little bit about fabric. For any DIY no-sew project I always think it’s best to use a solid fabric with an identical ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ side. I also think it’s important to use a self-finished fabric so that if you are cutting with scissors the fabric won’t fray. This fabric will really help give your skirt a beautiful and professional finish. I chose this bright, pretty, pink color but feel free to choose any color that works for your aesthetic.

Take measurements

To get started on this awesome DIY I folded my fabric over twice so that there were four layers of fabric. I made sure there were no wrinkles or creases in the fabric because I needed accurate measurements. Next, I took the measuring tape and measured my waist. I folded the tape placing the zero mark on my waist measurement. I then folded the tape over again.

Next, I laid my folded measuring tape across the corner of the fabric and drew a line.

From the corner of my pretty fabric to the line I drew, I measured 3-inches. This measurement was important so I marked it along the line from the edge of the fabric. I would need to remember it later to mark the length of the skirt.

I then cut along the curve I had just made.

Next, it was time to measure the length of the skirt. I wanted my skirt to be 19-inches. Using my handy measuring tape I measured 19-inches from the side I had just cut.

I continued measuring across the skirt sticking to my 19-inch measurement. I had to take into consideration the 3-inches I had cut so I made my markings along the fabric at 22-inches.

Finally, I could see the fabric transform into a skirt. I cut along my markings and I couldn’t wait to see how this skirt would turn out.
