Hi guys, today is one of those days where I am super excited to share with you all. It’s because of my diy trumpet skirt. I was inspired to make this trumpet skirt from one that I saw online at ASOS a couple of months ago. A few of my favorite bloggers had worn it, and I thought it was just so cute. It was quickly sold out on ASOS. So what’s a tall fashion blogger to do. Take matters into her own hands and make one herself, and that is exactly what I did. What makes it even better is that I already had the perfect pattern, lining, zipper and the fabric in my stash. So I was good to go. Surprisingly this diy skirt was pretty easy to sew up. I followed the pattern directions with one exception. I omitted the waist band. I just wasn’t liking the way it was sitting when I tried it on. It seemed unnecessary. I like the much cleaner line I have without it. I decided to pair my uber feminine trumpet skirt with my black (faux) leather jacket and lace up sandals to give it a touch of edge. I think this is one of my favorite outfits so far. I love each piece separately and they all bring something to this outfit without making it over the top. This mommy’s style and sewing skills are slowly progressing and I have to say, I quite happy with that. 🙂
Pattern Description: Misses Skirts
Pattern Sizing: 6-12
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I made view A. Yes it did minus the waist band which I purposely omitted.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes they were very easy. I read them first because I am a beginner, but didn’t really find them necessary. Very simple and easy to make skirt.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved how easy it was to make.
Fabric Used: Hot pink polyester woven with a bit of stretch.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: added 3″ length
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would definitely sew this pattern again and plan on doing so soon. I would highly recommend this pattern to there.
Conclusion: Loved how my skirt turned out and very thankful for this cute and easy pattern.
Thank you for reading!
