1 Fitted Jersey

Fitted JerseyHandmade summer skirts don't always mean flowy and Bohemian-like. Sometimes, a good fitted skirt will serve your sartorial needs during a warm day, too. Said type of skirt will be particularly nice when made of soft cotton jersey.

2 Mullet

MulletThese types of skirts became quite popular last year. You can still rock them today, of course. As you can see, making a mullet skirt is very easy. A thrifted long maxi skirt will be a great “base” for this project.

6 Full and Gathered

Full and GatheredThis is one of my more recent sewing tutorials. I promise you that this is a very easy sewing project. In fact, in essence, you will be needing only two rectangular pieces, a long fabric strip, and pocket pieces to make this skirt. I suggest that you use a fabric with loud and colorful prints.

7 Anthro-Inspired

Anthro-InspiredDon't you just love the ruffled detailing here? They're pretty yes, but they're not the best part of this skirt. The best part is that this whole project was inspired by an Anthropologie product. Their items are usually quite pricey so this tutorial by Amber is all sorts of fantastic.

8 Hemless

HemlessIf you hate hemming by hand, you will find this sewing project fun and appealing. The hem section here is finished using a contrasting band and attached with the help of a sewing machine. This bottom band gives your skirt a lovely visual interest.

9 Scarf Wrap

Scarf WrapThis DIY skirt idea is great for the beach, too. Aside from being beach-perfect, it's also very easy to do. You simply attach elastic to one side of a pretty scarf and wear like a wrap-around piece of clothing. Fun, right?
