An exposed zipper is a cool functional way to add design details to you garment. I love how this skirt puts the exposed zip in the front, running all the way from the waist to the hem. Combined with a metallic brocade fabric, this mini skirt is perfect for a night out on the town. Read on to see how I would DIY it.
How to DIY a Zip Front Mini Skirt
Step 1: Today's inspiration is a front-zip mini by Rebecca Taylor. I love the details of the exposed front zipper and the curved hem.
Step 2: The Sister Mini pattern by Vanessa Pouzet is an exact match to our inspiration. No adjustments needed. Yay!
Step 3: For the fabric, I found this great metallic brocade from Mood. Using a flashy material in a smaller garment like a mini skirt is a great way to highlight something special without overwhelming.
