DIY:Turn your leggings to skirts

Hey beautiful people,
I went on a short vacation before school came into a full swing and going through my things i find this leather wannabe pair of leggings ( don’t get me wrong it was super comfy and soft on the inside).i was once in love with these pair, they happened to have been a gift from my grandma but lately they just don’t fit tight but i wasn’t ready to part with them yet so I decided to alter which brings us to our DIY today,

Things you will need

measuring tape




  • Place the leggings flat down and cut up all the sides of the leggings, place them straight down and cut using an old skirt as a template and sew down the sides together giving us a new skirt
  • Turn the skirt on the right side and cut the area you want, okay the good thing with this fabric id that i don’t need to hem it and also my leggings had a lot of seams so i just cut through one

  • Mark up the areas you want the lace to pass through i measured my spacing by one inch and put in small holes so the eyelets could pass through


  • So i used fifty eyelets in total and i cut up my string and just laced up and we are done


           Okay so from the picture i had initially used an elastic but i changed my mind because after i first wore it it looked funny so i came in and added a zip and darts as well so  i could get a snug fit

  • Lace up skirt

    How do I look in this?
