DIY: Skirt for fall


Hello, and Happy Monday to everyone, to all of you who is in US - happy holiday, today  is Labor Day, and we are not going to work - hurrah!
So, today I want to present you my newest DIY - "fur like" skirt, the material is pretty sick and it was tough to sew, later I will tell you in detail and pictures how I made it, and now just take a look at  pictures of my new furry little friend ;o)
By the way bow also made by me, after the skirt was done, I felt like adding something to it. Those great and super comfortable shoes, (you saw them in my previous post) was a present from my mom, in addition to being a great photographer, she has amazing taste!

Здраствуйте друзья, наступил понедельник, как правило это первый рабочий день недели, но в Америке сегодня праздник - День Труда; так что всем читателям на территории США я желаю хорошего выходного, а всем остальным легкого, не загруженного понедельника.
Сегодня я хочу вам представить свою обновку - которую я сделала сама, юбка аля мех/перья - честно говоря сложно описать этот материал, очень плотный (было тяжеловато шить), но на ощупь изумительный -  мягкий и шелковистый; позже  я представлю отчет с фотографиями того как я ее делала, а сегодня взгляните на фотографии моей новой спутницы.
Кстати - бант я тоже сама смастерила,когда я закончила делать юбку мне показалось, что необходимо что-то добавить. Еще один важный момент - вот эти великолепные и очень удобные туфли (вы их видели в предыдущей публикации) это подарок моей мамы- в добавление к тому что она хороший фотограф, она еще обладает классным вкусом.

Now, DIY :
You will need:
Fur fabric, I BOUGHT THE ONE with one side sewed , that would be my bottom hem, no need to sew it:

Fabric (silk like) for linen skirt:

Black damask fabric for the belt:

Step 1:

You will need fur fabric= B*3
For belt: A*2
Cut the fabric as wide as C = 1inch for sewing allowance for bottom hem and 3 times as long as B. I didn't use C measurements, because the fabric I bought was already precut and with one end sewed, which was used as bottom hem.

Step 2:

Linen skirt: Measurments for it should be 2 inches longer than the width for fur fabric (B) and 0,5 inches shorter than fur fabric length (C), the bottom hem of the linen skirt will not be sewed to the fur skirt.

Step 3:

Gather two fabrics together and make folds by pinning them, make folds at even distance

Step 4:

When fur and linen fabrics are gathered in folds at even distance, they have to be sewed.

Step 5:

The fabric for my belt was thin (but very beautiful), so I folded it twice lengthwise to make it thicker, and then folded it in half and ironed it. The width of the belt can be any you prefer, it can be even wider than I did.
Step 6:
Pin fur skirt inside of the belt and sew it:

Step 7:

When belt is sewed to the skirt, sew two ends of the linen skirt to both ends of the fur skirt, leaving about  0.5 inches from both ends for zipper, then sew the zipper to the fabric:

After this, put the skirt on and fold  (pin it) the fabric of the belt into darts at even distance, so the belt sits slick at the waist line, then sew the darts. I made two at the front,  one from each side and two at the back:

After that, sew on snaps to the belt:

And the skirt is ready:
