Off-the-shoulder Top X Ankara Skater Skirt

Skater skirt

My love for ankara fabric and bare shoulder  lately is really overwhelming, so I decided to pair my two favourites together. I wore this skirt with the bralet that I made for Christmas here.

This outfit is me just playing dress-up and I’m so in love with it.

How I made the skater skirt, continue after the jump…

Skater skirt

All you’ll need:

  • Fabric
  • Sewing machine
  • Zipper
  • Thread
  • Measuring tape
  • Office pins

First, you cut 2 rectangular pieces for the waist band which will be the waist measurement and add 2inches. Place a stitch witchery on the wrong side of one fabric. Then sew the order rectangle together.


Then for the skater, you fold your fabric twice to form 4 joined square.


To cut the waist measurement; measure your waist around you belly button with a tape, mine is 28, the radius will be r=28/2π, where π = 3.14 and note the radius of your waist measurement. At the joined corner, where all four square meet, measure your waist radius, add 2 inches and pin it.
