Build Your Wardrobe with the Dezi Skirt

If you’re looking for an easy-to-sew, stylish skirt with a unique silhouette, meet Dezi! This fluted, midi-length skirt is cut on the bias and features an elastic waistband and diagonal seam across the middle.

The fluted silhouette looks best sewn in lightweight or medium-weight fabrics, like, linen, chambray, and rayon challis.

Michele is wearing a size 6 Dezi skirt. Her measurements are 34”, 28”, 38 1/2” and she is 5’6”.

Shop for Fabric

Since the Dezi skirt has a fluted shape, you can play with its silhouette. Choose lightweight fabrics such as linen or rayon challis for a bit more swing. Or pick medium-weight fabrics such as silk noil or a lightweight chambray for a more fluted shape.
