DIY 35: how to add pockets to a skirt

Hey pixels!! Today’s DIY is about fashion. How to make your skirt look as a new one. Actually my skirt was new, I bought a cheap skirt just to make this DIY, but you can use a skirt that you already have at home. Give it a new  life.

I used faux leather to make the pockets, but you can use the material you prefer. I had two different colours, so I made a pocket of each one, I put the pockets next to the skirt and I choose the one that matched better with my skirt. In my case, I prefered the darkest tone.

It’s an easy DIY. It does not need advanced sewing skills, and you can sew it by hand if you don’t have a sewing machine. In this case, just use a material softer than faux leather.

You’ll need:

  • a skirt
  • faux leather (or any other material, in a colour that matches your skirt)
  • sewing machine
  • scissors, pen or chalk, paper


Cut out two identical pockets. I draw the shape on a paper, I cut it and I used it as template. Make the shape you want; in my case, I prefered a traditional shape.

Choose placement on your skirt for the pockets and mark with a pen or chalk. Sew pockets on this place.

Wear your new skirt!!

  • falda
  • piel falsa, en un color que combine bien con la falda
  • máquina de coser
  • tijeras, lápiz o tiza, papel


Corta dos bolsillos iguales. Yo dibujé la forma en una hoja de papel, la corté y la usé como molde. Haced la forma que queráis; yo me decanté por esta, más tradicional.

Elegid donde queréis poner los bolsillos, marcad el lugar con lápiz o tiza y cosed los bolsillos donde hayáis marcado.

¡¡Lucid vuestra nueva falda!!
