Background: The skirt I created was made from scratch - meaning, I didn't have a store-bought pattern. It was my first time making my own pattern and if interested, you could do the same thing (I explain EXACTLY how to do it in Step 2). It wasn't difficult, but took some time and adjustments. Once done, you have your own pattern to use to create more skirts in the future. If you're not interested in making such a custom-fit skirt, you could always use a pattern from the store or use a straight skirt you already have. The skirt took the majority of the time. The peplum attachment did not take long and is very simple to make. If you just want to make some of them to attach to skirts you already have, feel free to skip to that step of this instructable! I took my time making the skirt as I wanted it to be really high-quality and fully lined on the inside. I'm really happy with how it turned out!
If you have any questions on any step of this instructable, please ask me in the comments section! I am happy to help!
Photo credits go to my 7-yr-old son Josh - thanks for taking the pics. I hope I don't look angry in the main picture as I was kind of squinting from the sun! :) And, we had a few lighting issues so if colors look a little different, that is why!
