Psychedelic skirt that will make you stand out!
I made this skirt after I found this great psychedelic fabric at a thrift store in town... I had an idea of something to make and I just went with it!

  • How to sew a patchwork skirt. High Waisted Psychedelic Patchwork Skirt - Step 1
    Step 1

    First you need a base skirt that you will glue the psychedelic patchwork pieces onto.

    Then, with your scraps of fabric, you need to iron them flat in preparation for their sides to be folded in.

    Next, you need to take the sides of the fabric and iron them to the middle of the scrap making a geometric shape of your choice. This is so the fabric does not fray.

    After you have enough geometric shapes to glue to your skirt, start organizing them into place. I use any fabric glue that says it is OK to wash the garment. :)

    Make sure you plan where your shapes are going beforehand!

    It is just a trial-and-error project, whatever you come up with in the end will be unique and interesting looking! I think this technique would look good with a black skirt and a solid color of patches.

    :)

    Happy creating!
