d.i.y. lace maxi skirt video.




hey everyone! i decided to do another video, because i found this awesome diy on lovemaegan's blog and totally jacked it from her. i really have to give her a shout out because her blog rocks and you all need to check it out. i just love the look of this lace skirt, and used this material because it was the only fabric i had on hand, but thank god i had it because i dig it. this video was whittled down to nothing. it was origninally an hours worth of tessa ramblings and such.

NOTE: i am not a sewer, in any way shape or form. i have been spoiled in my work by having others make my patterns and sew for me. the most i do is hem a pair of pants (by hand), i just want to make that clear.

i just want you to know that what i did mention, which was cut, is that this is a really quick and easy version. it's a bit janky in quality, but you know me, if it involves more than sewing a straight line i won't do it. so for all of you professional sewers i apologize for crawling over the fabric and all of the faux pas. oops. i also apologize for the pic, it was just a still taken from the video. and i would like to thank my husband for helping me with this video on 'date nite, yay!'. love. hope you all enjoy!

oh, and i decided to give you all until this coming sunday to submit your diy t-shirts. i will announce the winner this monday. there was a problem with my e-mail but it is now working, so send the pics of your tee here.

sending loves.

  1. hah, if only I werent too lazy for anything involving the sewing machine. pulling the hem of a dress up to my waist and belting it is pretty much as good as it gets...

  2. attempting style--i totally get it. i am the same way, usually. i just thought since this only involves sewing two straight lines i could do it. i can't wait to do it with other fabrics!! xxx

  5. Awesome! I love these diy videos! I've probably messed up more projects than I've successfully completed, but I still keep trying. A good sewing machine makes all the difference. A cutting table would be nice too, but for now I have the living room floor. (lame).
