last sunday i was feeling crafty and decided to make a few maxi skirts! i though i would share how to make them- if you have sewn at least once in your life, then i’m sure you will be able to make these simple maxi skirts!
i am very tall, so i bought 2 yards of chiffon fabric for each skirt, 1 1/2 yards of jersey knit for both skirts to go under skirt (chiffon is see thru), and 2 yards of elastic for the band (1 yard each). also you will need thread if you don’t have any laying around at home.
step one: lay out your fabric (hot dog style) and cut the folded edge of the fabric for a side seam.
step two: make pleats, approx. 1 inch in between each pleat on front and back of skirt on right side of fabric. PRESS with iron. OR you can gather along top of skirt front & back instead of making pleats.
step three: sew along pleats to secure. PRESS.
more pictures to come with my new maxis, i just love them!
