In this tutorial, I’m sharing how to make a SKIMS cozy dupe. Kim Kardashian’s SKIMS cozy collection is a loungewear line made with fuzzy, fleece-like fabric. The cheapest top in the collection is $51 alone, so I decided to make my own SKIMS cozy knockoffs instead!

My SKIMS-inspired outfit will be a pink three-piece set with a robe, top, and shorts. Perfect for lounging around the house or keeping warm and cozy in the coming colder months. Let’s get cozy!

Tools and materials:

  • 4 Yards pink Sherpa fabric
  • Measuring tape
  • Fabric marker
  • Scissors
  • Robe to use as a pattern
  • Sewing machine
  • Safety pin
  • Pins or clips
  • Soft waistband elastic (2 inches wide)
How to make a SKIMS cozy robe

1. Make a robe pattern

First, you need to draft a pattern using an existing robe that you have. It doesn’t have to be exact, as robes aren’t form-fitting, but it will help you get the general shape you need.

My robe pattern was shorter than I wanted and short-sleeved, but I adjusted the measurements later.

2. Adjust the pattern

I wanted my SKIMS cozy robe to be longer than my existing robe. So, I folded my Sherpa fabric, measured 48 inches along the fold, then extended my pattern (front and back pieces) to that length.

Cutting the pink Sherpa fabric

3. Cut the fabric

Cut out the front and back pieces from the Sherpa fabric.

Snipping where the sleeves end

Snip where the sleeve ends to ensure your sleeves align perfectly.

4. Create the robe belt loops

Cut out two small rectangles of fabric and fold them lengthwise, right sides together. These will be the belt loops. Sew down along the non-folded side, then turn the fabric right sides out.

You can use a safety pin to turn the fabric, to make it easier.

Assembling the SKIMS cozy robe

5. Insert the belt loops

My front and back robe pieces are pinned together already (right sides together). Measure 7 inches down from where the sleeves end and pin the robe belt loops inside the fabric.

Sewing the SKIMS cozy set

6. Sew the robe

Zigzag and overlock stitch all around the pinned areas.

Lengthening the sleeves of the cozy robe

7. Lengthen the sleeves

My original pattern was for a short-sleeved robe, so I extended the sleeves to 24 inches, to achieve the oversized, cozy look that I want. Do that for both sleeves, then cut them out.

8. Pin and sew the sleeves

Pin the sleeve pieces together, then zigzag stitch along the side seams.

Attaching the sleeves to the cozy robe

9. Attach the sleeves

Line up the sleeves with the armhole and pin right sides together. Pin at the seams first, then pin around, to ensure everything is even. Sew with a zigzag and overlock stitch all the way around.

Creating the waist belt for the robe

10. Create the waist belt

For the waist belt, cut out a long strip on the fold, 58 inches long and 3 inches wide. Pin right sides together and sew with a straight stitch all the way around, closing up both ends, but leaving an opening to turn the fabric later.

Turn the fabric right side out and close the opening with a slipstitch.

How to make a SKIMS cozy tank top

11. Make the tank top

The tank top is actually the easiest part. I took a tank top that fit me well, shortened it a bit, then used it as a pattern to cut out my fabric. I placed it on top of the folded Sherpa fabric and cut around it, making sure that the front has a lower neckline than the back.

12. Pin and sew the tank top

Pin the front and back pieces of the tank top, right sides together. Sew the pieces together with a zigzag stitch.

How to make SKIMS cozy shorts

13. Make the shorts

The shorts are also pretty easy. I folded up some leggings to use as a pattern, as I wanted that biker short look. I placed the leggings on the folded Sherpa fabric and cut around them, leaving a little room for seam allowance. Do this twice to create two leg pieces.

Pinning the shorts legs

14. Pin and sew

First, pin and sew the leg area - don’t touch the crotch area yet!

Inserting one leg into the other to sew

Insert one leg into the other leg and pin right sides together. Sew all the way around the u-shape of the crotch with a zigzag stitch.

Measuring a waistband with thick elastic

15. Create a waistband for the shorts

For the waistband, I’m using soft waistband elastic that is 2 inches wide. Measure it around your waist to get a snug fit.

Cutting a waistband out of pink Sherpa fabric

16. Cut out the waistband

Place the elastic on the folded Sherpa fabric and cut around it to create the waistband.

Pinning and sewing the cozy shorts waistband

17. Pin and sew the waistband

Pin the waistband to the shorts, then sew down, leaving a small opening for the elastic. Lastly, feed the elastic through the waistband, sew the ends together, and close the opening.
