diy lanvin ruched beach skirt

April 26, 2013

As soon as I saw this  Lanvin Ruched Beach Skirt I knew it would be perfect to DIY. Not only is it a great beach cover up, it’s really easy to make! 
[Tip: When working with swimwear fabric on a sewing machine, it is best to stretch it as you sew]


[Cut a section from the top of the fabric that 1″ wide and 55″ long]
[Fold the fabric in half and sew a line the entire length, creating a tube]
[Using the loop turner, turn right side out]
[Fold fabric in half width wise. Using your hip measurement as a guide, cut out a square, measuring 19″ long]
[Cut approx. 4″ of fabric off at the waist, creating a curve from the waist to the hips]
[Fold the skirt in half- right sides together and sew the seam leaving about an inch on the side]
[Fold the ends of the seams down and sew in place, creating tiny tubes]
[Thread the tube through the loop turner from hem to waistband, hook on the string you made earlier and pull through]
[Fold the string over and pull through from waistband to hem. Adjust the ruching and tie a bow]

      I usually buy fabric from I think I purchased this fabric from Joann (I can't remember- it was a while ago) They always have 30% coupons. Hope this helps =)
