DIY Inspiration: Mesh Inserts

Lately I’ve been seeing clothes with mesh inserts that I really like. It’s easy for sheer inserts to read as super sexy, but I’m especially drawn to the looser pieces that are more sporty or casual. A sewing pattern would be easy to modify to add inserts, or you could start with an existing garment and do some surgery with mesh fabric. The easiest piece to replicate would be something like this black Milly skirt, which you could make just by adding a mesh overlay or trim to the bottom of a pencil skirt. This Anthropologie tank would probably be a good place to start, too. With many types of fabric you can even get away with leaving the mesh unhemmed/unfinished on the edges, making the project even easier. I’m really making myself want to get sewing and add a little bit of the sheer trend to my wardrobe, how about you?
