DIY: gathered skirt (intermediate-difficult sewing)

This DIY is perfect for the summer! It's a little bit more difficult but manageable! I used a little under 2 yards of fabric that I got from a friend. The fabric I'm using is called "lavalava" which is traditional Samoan cloth. It's a cotton material that has a little bit more structure to it.


  • 2 yards of fabric 
  • sewing machine 
  • pins
  • zipper (mine was 6 inches) 
  • matching thread 
  • measuring tape 
  • rotary cutter or scissors 
The tutorial I followed was by CheapbutChic1 on YouTube. Here's the link!
