I LOVE maxi skirts! So incredibly comfortable but you can still look put together. I hope you enjoy this DIY Maxi Skirt Tutorial.
DIY Maxi Skirt Instructions
- 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
