DIY How To Make A Sheer Maxi Skirt

{Bracelet from Forever 21}

Tools you will need:

Material Sheer Chiffon Type 1 1/2 or two yards
Thread & Needle
Pattern Optional or use a skirt you have as an outline
Lots of push pins
Elastic band for the top if you choose to or a zipper is another option. I pulled mine over my head to avoid both.
Sewing Machine or Lots of TIME to hand sew

Couple of tips 
  • Use LOTS of pins this material moves a lot.
  • Before you cut go 1 1/12 to 2 inches away from your Dress if you choose to do this without a pattern. You need room for Ease and Sewing.
  • IF you choose to use Chiffon or a Sheer Material, consider double sewing your stitch, or running it through the sewing machine twice to keep it from fraying so badly.

How To Wear? 

Think outside the box, where a slip or mini skirt that you already have in your wardrobe under the sheer skirt. Try shorts or leggings even, be brave and consider some funky tights!
