Have you ever wanted your ski gear to look like that of a pro? You can now make your dream come true with the help of ski skins! We will teach you the basics of how to make the perfect ski suits and park fashion from the top brands, including Oakley, Billabong, and more.

The Materials You’ll Need To Make The Perfect Ski Skins

You will need to collect the following items to make the perfect ski skins:

  • a pair of scissors
  • a sewing needle
  • a needle-felted brush
  • 100% polyester combed broad-cloth
  • a patterned textile that is the same size as your garment piece
  • an iron
  • an ironing board
  • dry cleaning supplies
  • a hair dryer
  • heat-set polyester filament yarn

How To Cut Up Your Clothes To Fit Your Skin

You can use your clothes as a base for your ski skins. Begin by taking your jeans and cutting them at the crotch area. Then use your camper’s pull-down ladder to get your sweater and cut it at the neckline for an oversized look. You can also cut your jacket and shirt to make them fit you better. If you follow these simple steps, you will have a fashionable and functional base to work on!

How To Sew The Skins

After you have your base finished, it’s time to move on to the sewing part. Start by using your zipper to fix the center back of your jacket. Overlap the collar and the front bodice for an extra layer of material. Next, use your needle and thread to stitch the bottom of your jacket and skirt, and your sweater and skirt together.

At this point, you should have a complete jacket and skirt. Now, take your pull-down ladder to fix the neckline of your sweater. Stitch the front of your sweater and the back of your jacket together at the collar for a better fit. You can use your sweater’s front as a base for the back of your jacket by using the reverse-stitch technique. Next, finish your base layer with a collar and a cuffs on your shirt and neckline. Use your shirt’s front for the base and stitch your skirt and jacket together at the back using a single needle. You will then need to attach the bottom of your jacket and skirt using the same technique. Once you are happy with your base layer, you can move on to the next step.

How To Finish Your Skins

Use your iron and the recommended instructions provided by the brand you are using to sew your skins. After your skin is finished and cooled, you can use a needle-felted brush to give it some shine. You can also use dry cleaning supplies to give it a new look. This step is not necessary, but it can help transform your humble ski gear into premium-looking leisure wear!
