Feather Skirt DIY













* I cut off the knots on the ends of the boas …but I try to avoid cutting them anywhere else because the feathers will start to unravel.
* I did this first to a dress years ago and left the feathers a bit fluffier.
* Feather boas make a great base because they are already all stitched together and they are relatively inexpensive {if you buy them at your fabric store} These were $11.99 each and the thinner ones are about $7.99 …but choose wisely 😉 Also note the super large boas, will not work.
* You could buy a bag of feathers and hand-stitch each one on separately but it would not be as secure and would take about 3 days straight.
* If you find a dress you want to feather, floor-length would work well too …but you’ll need many more and will most likely just stitch straight on from top to bottom. Try on your dress and while the dress is on, pin your feathers in place …just around the top, where you want them to start. If you’re planning a higher waist, it would probably look better belted, so begin your feathers directly below where the belt would sit.
* Ostrich feather boas would be the best …but they are not budget friendly.
* note: I did not leave the peacock feathers in mine. I liked it better without.
