Follow me on my Facebook page 
And never miss anything

As all of you know my blog isnt just about home related diy projects. I am a fashion freak and i love experimenting with it. Its been a little while that ive been designing my own dresses and each of them got me compliments. A LOT OF COMPLIMENTS!!! All made by my Genius mom! (Moms! Theyre just meant to be THE best!)
It was valentine yesterday and i wanted something red as i was takin hubby on a date. 
This time due to lack of time i decided not to bug mommy and try something i watched on youtube.
A diy skirt that would have perfectly symmetrical plaits. 

That red...! Its just too intense!

If i was to buy this ready made... i would probably paying a fortune.
But instead i followed the instructions with a few modifications and VOILA!!!!
I had the perfectEST dress ready.
 All you need is this:
3 meters of fabric (you can use more but this is the ideal size)
1 broad belt (mine was elastic one)
A sewing machine (just to hem the sides)
A needle and thread.
Glue gun.
And emblishments (optional)

First of all... take you measurent from the waist till toe and cut the whole fabric of that length.
Hem 2 short and one long side using sewing machine.
3 sides hemmed.

Now this is the formula that you need to follow:
HALF and HALF and HALF and HALF.
Easist way to get perfect plaits.

You will lay your belt flat keeping the inside up. Take the fabric's unhemmed side and stitch the 2 ends of fabric on the ends of belt.
Stitch on the corner using needle and thread.

Once done with that you will now fold your fabric into half to find the middle and then stitch that on the middle of your belt.
One HALF done.
Stitched into the middle.

Fold the left side of fabric again to find the half of it and stitch it in the mid point of left corner and last stiched point. Reapeat the same on right.
Keep halfing and halfing and stitching till you get thisss

Halfed and halfed and halfed and halfed again.

Time to use the gluegun. Repeat the same step now but just use glue gun instead of stitching.

Perfect plaits!!!

It took me around an hour to finish it but was totally totally worth it!!!
Rocked it with boot black pant and red boots.
The kids around me were going all crazy :')

The intense red...!!! 

So much that i'll definitely try something more using same technique :')

  1. Hi Huda, that skirt looks amazing, where did you get the red skirt material to begin with? Not all of us have such nice dresses to begin with.

    I hope hubby was pleased :-)
