I LOVE maxi skirts! So incredibly comfortable but you can still look put together
Big thanks to my little sister for modeling!
I gave her this skirt for Christmas (I know I’m a bit behind blogging…) and one to my older sister who was pregnant. These skirts work for everyone!
Want to make your own???
These are so incredibly easy I didn’t even take photos but I do have a step by step for you:
1. Let’s cut our pieces:
- Waistband: For a finished band height of 6″ cut your piece to 13″ tall. For a size small I cut 2 waistband pieces to 15″ wide. I used 1/2″ seam allowances. Measure yourself wear you want the bottom edge of the waistband to hit (generally on your hips) and subtract 2-3″ to calculate your waistband width
- Skirt: Measure your desired length (you may want a helper) and add 1″ for seam allowances and hemming. If in doubt error on the long side. My skirt was 30″ wide across the bottom and 15″ at the top (same width as the waistband piece).
- Make sure you cut all pieces so they will stretch around your body
2. With right sides together sew up the side seams of the skirt and the waistband.
3. Roll the waistband over so the seam is enclosed and you have a double thickness tube.
4. Slide the waistband over the skirt so it’s on the right side of the skirt and the raw edges are together. Sew together using a serger or zig-zag stitch. I like to include some 1/4″ elastic in this seam for extra stability.
5. Hem and enjoy!
