DIY Origami Skirt

The skirt of the moment… Certainly the most photographed and the most sought. The Origami skirt. It’s an overlapped skirt with asymmetric cuts on the front (wrap style skirt). There are several versions of this skirt, the skirt-pant (like the super famous from ZARA ) and other mini skirt types.

After the request of my friends, I made this tutorial on how to make your own origami skirt … WITHOUT SEWING ANYTHING! Get the fabric in the color you prefer and make yours in less than 15 minutes!

Plan B a n n a · e v e r s DIY origami skirt materials

Materials:

  • Knitting (it’s important that it’s strech fabric (T-shirt type) so it adapt’s to the body without fraying)
  • Scissors
  • Two safety pins
  • Measuring tape
  • Iron
  • Hem Tape

Process:

1. Cut the skirt following the measures of the top drawing (these measures correspond to a size S-M) If you want a larger size, add 4cm to the width (112cm + 4cm = 116cm) and if you want a smaller size take 4cm off.

2. Iron the the fabric.

3. Iron the edges with the hem tape (photo of the patter, the illustration shown below) This tape works as a glue between the fabrics and it gives a clean and polished finish to the edges.

4. Iron the corners without steam. And the skirt is ready.

To wear the skirt:

Wrap skirt starting at the straight corner inside and securing it with a safety pin.

The next end of the skirt with the two peaks overlaps and closes the skirt.

Secure it with a safety pin.

Fold the top from the waist to the hip above the skirt. This will hide the safety pins and gives a nice finish simulating an asymmetric waistband.

This skirt is a low cost and a DIY version inspired of the origami skirt. You can combine it with a sport / casual look or with great pair of heels and a nice top.

Until a new post DIY’er! 😉

    this is great great great! I tried making a white Zara knock-off with a zipper and everything and it turned out too small for me! Might try again with your tutorial 🙂

      HI Safia! If you are very tall I’ll recomend you to add about 10-15 cm extra… you can always cut a bit of if you want it shorter 😉
      thanks for your comment!

      Hola Diana, depende del ancho de tu friselina, si es de 4 cm pues dobla 4 cm, y asi… Recuerda que la plancha no debe de tocar directamente la friselina, ya que se te derretiría en ella. Buena suerte!! ^^
