Umbrella skirt

Design > Umbrella skirt

materials: 2 black umbrellas

description: If you're looking for the perfect rainy day project, you've found it.

I created this project for during the final stretch of my graduate thesis from Pratt Institute. My studies were centered around, you guessed it, trash! I called my thesis "Trash Nouveau - reincarnating garbage into usable products." And when the time came for my final presentation I wanted to wear my passion. I made two version of the skirt for the event. For the presentation I created a multi-colored skirt that was just above the knee. For the evening gallery opening, I made the simple black skirt and salvaged two umbrellas, pictured at left.

design note: To create your very own umbrella skirt, you can check out the instructions in the DIY section. Perhaps best of all, this skirt is waterproof, making it sew perfect for any weather.
