Isn’t this fabric pretty? I got a big sheet for $3 at the thrift store and used about half of it for this skirt. It’s super easy to turn a sheet into a skirt, because you can use the existing hem! For this skirt, I cut off the top part of the sheet and used it as the skirt, then added a simple yoke, back zipper and suspender straps to give it a little something extra!
Every part of this skirt was made with simple rectangles and measurements, so it’s easy to make your own!
skirt: desired length by top of sheet
waistband: waist measurement +2″ by 5″, folded in half
straps: 3″ by length from skirt front to skirt back over shoulders (with criss cross)
To make this skirt: 1. Cut your yoke piece. It should be a little bigger than you waist and 5″ wide, folded in half. 2. Gather the top of the sheet. 3. Match up the sheet (skirt piece) to the yoke and pin together. Sew it up and add a zipper in the back seam. 4. To make the suspenders cut 3″ strips. 5. Fold both edges in and press. 6. Fold in half and press. 7. Topstitch both sides and sew them to the front and back yokes.
the floral print is cute. would love to see it with a yellow or white top. i don’t get the suspenders.
I love that. The yellow is nice and breezy! I love this vintage sheet trend, I found one with lace on the top hem the other day and didn’t know what to do with it. Maybe I’ll make myself a skirt! Thanks!
that’s pretty durn cute.
Yellow floral so pretty and the suspenders yesss!!! Well done.
Really pretty! I’m a bit envious of all your summery posts – it’s winter here. I love buying floral sheets for sewing, you can pick up some really beautiful prints. Can’t beat the amount of yardage you get for a bargain price!
Cute! I can’t use any of the images to pin it on Pinterest. Help!
