I've been a little obsessed with flowers this summer and I had the purple and turquoise fabric I wanted to do something with, so I made this skirt!

  • How to make a high-waisted skirt. High Waisted Fab Flower Skirt - Step 1
    Step 1

    First, you need a skirt to glue/sew the flowers to.

    I got a high-waisted skirt from Goodwill for 2$. It does not really matter what the skirt is made of as long as it looks good with the flowers you made.

    Here is how to make the flowers.

    1.Cut squares of fabric.
    2. Iron the corners in until you get a circle-like shape.

    Do the same for the other color of fabric for your flower layers. You do not need 2 layers, but I think it looks nicer with 2.

    Don't worry about gluing the corners down, the sewing machine will stabilize them later.

    Find similarly shaped layers and layer them on top of one another.

    Cut strips of another fabric to make the swirl on the fabric.

    Sew the strips onto the 2 layers of fabric starting from the middle and moving out.

    After you have enough flowers to cover the skirt or dress, take the fabric glue to the back of the flower and place it on the skirt. If you have 2 different colors, I would advise planning a design.

    Make sure you have enough glue on the flowers to hold them into place. Pin them in place as you go.

    Wait for the glue to dry.

    When you are taking the pins out of the flowers after the glue has dried, you might need a pair of pliers to grab the pins because the glue might have dried to them.

    This is OK though, your flowers won't be going anywhere on your skirt!
