Copycat and Knock Off Skirts – Skirt Designer

knock off skirt

Today for our skirt designer post I decided to make some copycat skirts on Style-Studio.  We just love copycat and knock off skirts!  I mean it’s what we’re all about here at Skirt Fixation, right?  Good quality, cheap price, easy redo!  So I decided to play around and see what I could do with the Style Studio app.  I started with the remake we did on Hacked to Happy. Remember this skirt?

sundress refashionI wasn’t sure how to copy this skirt, because Style-Studio didn’t have the exact plaid and it never looked right!  But then today I kind of exploring and I found a spot where I could take a picture, so I took a picture of the actual skirt right in the Style Studio app!

My next copycat skirt is the remake Color Block to Color POP we did a while back.  I think that I like this remake even more although it doesn’t look as realistic.

What I did first is I found a skirt that was about the length and style of the real skirt.  I then made the skirt all brown but cut off the bottom part and added the bows, making sure that they were close to the real color. I would have added lace but I couldn’t find out how. And this is my results.

The next one is a ruffled Anthropologie knock off skirt.  Now we love Anthropologie skirts and Anthropologie look skirt, but add ruffles, and we’re a puddle of drool on the floor!  Here’s what she had her eye on:

And here’s where she ended up!

Really, really awesome!  I think I’m going to talk Mom into doing a copycat or knock off skirt like this!  Here’s a link to her tutorial.

And the last one is probably the most complicated, but just wait until you see the knock off skirt look!


Dreamy, huh?  But just look at the layers and the detail…I think we may have to add another skirt to the wish list!  Or since Anthropologie no longer sells this skirt…a knock off skirt!  Many times we find pictures on Pinterest of really cute skirts that are no longer for sale, and that’s the beauty of knock off skirts!  Bringing back something great, for less!  So anyway, here’s this blogger’s version:

Yep, that’s what I’m talking about, bringing back a great thing!  I think I even like her fabric choice better than the original.  (Here’s her tutorial, if you want to try!)  And that’s another beautiful thing about copycat and knock off skirts, you can tweak them to suit your style perfectly!
