DIY mesh hem skirt

For sewing enthousiasts, this mesh skirt can make a quick & simple update to a pencil skirt you have at home.    I will give your old garment a fierce look, without making it too revealing!  Please share your creations on instagram with tag #boatpeoplevintage, can’t wait to see what you came up with!

Material needed:

  • 5″ mesh insert, same circumference as your skirt + 2″ for seam allowance
  • scissors, pins and sewing machine

Ari’s tips:

Try to find a mesh fabric that has the same stretch and weight as the main material your skirt is made of, it will prevent from twisting and wrinkling when you wear it.  Make the mesh insert as wide as you wish but don’t forget that it will lengthen your skirt as well :)  Finally, you can use this technique for inserting mesh onto almost any top, at the waist, hem, body or sleeves, lengthwise or width wise :)  ENJOY xo Ari
