This skirt was so ridiculously easy to make, it’s almost insulting for me to post about it here for you fine sewing folk to read.
I’ve wanted a maxi skirt for a while. I’m keen to wear this to school on cooler days or when I don’t want to show my legs. I also tested this at a mozzie infested park on the weekend with the kids and it certainly minimised the number of bites on my legs.
The fabric was purchased from the Fabric Store at our last social. The skirt was a breeze to knock together. I simply sewed a flared tube to the approximate measurement of my hip, then turned the skirt inside out to shape from hip to waist by pinning, then sewing. The waistband is finished with thick elastic, zig zagged on. Ridiculously easy and super comfy!
Pattern: Self drafted = Free
Fabric: (I lost my receipt from the Fabric store! boo! I’m guessing the fabric was $18 pm with 50% off. I was charged for 1.8 meters due to a fault.) 1.2m = $10.80
