I’ve got a super fun tutorial to share with you today! I have had this project in my head for a long time and I was happy to finally get it out into a physical project and see if I could figure it out!
Fabric (mine is a wool suiting). If the fabric is 56 inches wide, you need 1 5/8 yard. If your width is 44 inches it will still work and you will need 1 1/4 yard. You can use a knit or felt and that won’t fray just like mine.
Trim. I used 10 yards of this white lace to create 2 rings around the skirt. This is what holds the strand of lights. I sewed my lace on the skirt, but if you don’t sew you can use hot glue or something comparable… just be careful!
Lights (optional) They are a little spendy, but I just love the result. I can pull the lights out of the skirt and reuse them.
BE SURE TO USE LED LIGHTS. INCANDESCENT WILL PRODUCE HEAT AND WON’T BE SAFE FOR THIS PROJECT.
Basic Sewing Supplies like fabric scissors, ruler, string and water soluble pen.
I love this photo ;). It’s blurry, but I love that. I love that the lights are shining.
Here are some thumbnail photos I took hehe, but it shows you how the lights can change!
And if you watch the video you can find out why on earth I am wearing a fireman suit!
