DIY high-low skirt

A really cute summer trend is the high low  skirt (or handkerchief skirt).

I read about it on Universal Doll and was immediately inspired to do a project! Honestly, it's so simple and easy, ANYONE can do this.

Check out a reference image of several popular gal brands doing the high low look:

So let's make our own! You will need a long maxi skirt and some scissors.

Spread the skirt out, and cut out a large triangle. You can go up as high or keep it as low as you want - you will just need to adjust the angle accordingly. I chose the keep mine a bit low and just show ankles and shoes. :)

Here is what it looks after you cut it and bring the skirt fabric back together.

And there you have it! Very simple!

I found a light weight tiered skirt at an outlet store, but you can get yours pretty much anywhere as this type of skirt is easy to come by! Try Target, or even your local thrift store. :)

If you do this project, I would love to see pictures of your finished project!
