I recently bought two metres of this pretty knit fabric from Spotlight (40% off!) with the intention of making a dress of some sort.
But this afternoon I decided to make it into a maxi skirt. I simply cut the full two metre length to 95cm wide. I sewed it with right sides together to create a seam and then created a casing at the top for elastic and hemmed the bottom. This was a half hour project, and I’m very happy with the end result.
I’ve never been into long skirts or dresses but I’ve really enjoyed wearing this this afternoon. I think it’s going to be a favourite! And the best part – I have the remaining 55cm width of the two metres of fabric to make a short version. You really should give this a try…if you can sew a straight seam this is the project for you.
