I don't usually make more than one DIY per "inspiration". But in this case, having a newspaper print skirt was more than a whim for me. It was a real need! I saw the original skirt by the designer Carrie Hammer at I Spy DIY, and immediately remembered this newspaper fabric from my favorite fabric store in Barcelona. Actually, I think it's exactly the same fabric! Great issues of globalization!
You guys probably saw this DIY a few days ago on Twitter or Instagram. But here comes the tutorial in pictures and the video step by step. It's a high waist pleated skirt, an easy piece for sewing beginners!
I decided not to iron the pleats in order to get a fuller effect. What do you guys think?
UPDATE: I just found an spanish online store where they sell this fabric (actually it is the online store of the fabric store I went to) They ship internationally! http://www.tiendatelas.com/inicio/hogar/lonetas-estampadas/periodico
