Length Changing Zipper Skirt

There is an easy and stylish way to get more out of one skirt. This instructable shows you how to install 3 separating zippers into one skirt. You can then zip off a panel to change the length of the skirt based on weather and/or desired look. I created the skirt so it could be worn at 4 lengths:

– Ankle length

– Midi length

– Above-the-knee length

– Utility pockets to add function to any outfit

The zippers that used are all 48″ inch long separating zippers. The length of the zipper dictates the width of the skirt. I wanted the skirt to have a simple, straight, modern, and geometric look so, I ordered all three the same length. Some online zipper retailers cut separating zippers to custom lengths, which open up many design opportunities.
