DIY Highwaisted Lace Trim Skirt

DIY Highwaisted Lace Trim Skirt
My latest obsession has been everything lace, lots of sexy lace undergarments and robes.  While going through my ridiculously overflowing stash, I came across this faux lace fabric I picked up at G Street last year on the clearance wall for only $2.95.  I’m not sure of the content but it has a very slight stretch and it feels amazing.  The lace I used for the trim was picked up at Mood Fabrics in NY over the summer.  They have tons of beautiful lace at all price points.

This skirt was made with the same pattern used for this DIY pencil skirt with the following alterations:

-Added 2 inches to the top of the waist for a more defined high waist.
-Added a 1 inch waist band
-Added a lace trim to the hem

Shirt-Mens button up
Heels-Giuseppe Zanotti
Clutch-Bottega Veneta

    Gorgeous! Perfect fit, too. I am a lace fanatic too, Nikki, and glad to see the fabric appropriate for daytime. It looks great with your crisp white shirt and beautiful jacket.

    Very lovely. The lace at the hem really adds a elegant detail to the skirt.

    Hi, Nikki! I recently found your blog, via the article on I love love love your work – and this skirt is gorgeous!

    I notice you sew a lot of leather pieces, and if you're ever looking for something to write about, maybe you could write a guide to caring for leather clothing? And maybe some recommendations on the best fabrics to use as linings for leather clothes?

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experiences with us, it's very motivating and inspiring ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you, that's a great idea. I get tons of questions regarding leather.
