DIY Feather Skirt

D I Y  F E A T H E R  S K I R T

Hello, hello. Today we are going to learn about how easy (and fun!) it is to make a feather-hem skirt. This one from Lanvin is simply divine but (as Lanvin tends to be except when doing collaborations with H&M) is also unaffordable.

To make the FeFe for H&M version, you will need:

  1. 1 black skirt (I used an old bandage skirt I bought at H&M last year for $15)
  2. 3 yards of feather trim
  3. Sewing pins
  4. A needle and black thread

Start by pinning the feather trim in place. Working with a bandage skirt was ideal because I was able to follow the lines without having to do any measuring of my own.

For the first two lines of feather trim, I used a basic running stitch. The last yard of feather trim is the only place where any thread might be visible on the garment, so I learned how to do a slip stitch using an online guide.

The whole process is very simple and straightforward. I am not much of a sewer, so if I can do it, I am sure you can, too! Here is a shot of the final outcome:

    I wonder if H&M still has that skirt. it would be much easier to work with something that already has lines on it. any idea if its still there? i love this blog by the way!
