Mickey Ribbon Skirt

Mickey Ribbon Skirt


  • Denim Skort or Skirt in your size
  • Wide Disney ribbon(mine is about 2 inches)-length the same as the circumference of the skirt + 1 inch x 2
  • approx.5 more in. of ribbon for back pocket
  • coordinating thread
  • straight pins
  • fusible web
The back side

  1. Pin the two lengths of ribbon together so that they overlap about 1/2 in., allowing for a 3/8 seam allowance. Make sure the ribbon lays flat.
  2. Sew the ribbons together.
  3. Pin the ribbon onto the jean skirt. Again allow for a 3/8 in. seam allowance. Slow down at jean seams as my machine didn't care for them.
  4. You will need to hand stitch the back seam where the two ends of ribbon meet.
  5. To add more detail I cut a section of ribbon that fit the pocket and used fusible web to iron it on.
  6. My Mickey skirt is done!
