How to Make a Rip & Stitch SkirtMix and match fabric strips for a custom fit
This skirt is made of strips of torn woolen fabric in a variety plaids, checks, tweeds, and stripes, in the black-and-white color family. To duplicate the look, all you have to do is rip old wool clothes, or new wool scraps, into 3 1/2-inch-wide strips the length of your finished skirt.
If you use 60-inch-wide fabric, you can get two lengths from 1/8 yard. You can rip the fabric yourself or ask that the fabric be torn at the fabric store when you buy it. Add a lace trim from under the hem for a girly touch on this versatile skirt.
