Hello everyone! I thought I'd show you how the DIY scallop hem was done on my leather pencil skirt. I thrifted the skirt a while back and thought it needed to be shortened a little. I figured a scalloped hem would be a more interesting way to shorten it.
This DIY is pretty easy and self explanatory, but just in case anybody was wondering here are the steps. (Mom actually did all the work on it when I went home because she's better at all this stuff than I am and actually knew how to use the leather punch.)
1. Turn the skirt inside out and draw the scallops with some sort of template so you have a guideline when you cut.
3. Decide if you want plain scallops or want to do some leather punching details. I wanted more details on mine, so here's the leather punching device kit. It's the thing on top and you use a hammer to drive it into the leather.
4. Do some hole punching! Try using different hole sizes to make it more detailed.
5. Stop when you like how it looks. It's not so difficult at all!
Then you can wear cool scalloped leather skirt outfits like I did in this post:
Happy Friday everyone!
