Do you remember when I made the black and white print maxi skirt? I probably mentioned back then that I generally don’t wear anything maxi…I’m quite short and have always felt that the extra length made me look even more short. Well, having tried it I no longer care whether I look short – I love long skirts! Although my black & white maxi skirt is a little too long and I often feel like I’m going to trip over it and pull it right off. Given that the waist is elastic it could happen!
It was just so simple to make that I decided to make another one, this time a little shorter. I cut the full 150cm width of fabric to 95cm long. Joined it to make a seam and then hemmed the top and the bottom. Then slipped some elastic through the top to form the waist. Voile…
Apologies for the slightly strange self portrait. Can you tell I was using the timer on the camera? It’s a shocker but I didn’t have time to try again and didn’t want to delay getting this post up.
I’m trying hard this year to show you my sewing projects on me.
If you are thinking of starting sewing this would be a great little project to have a go at. Please do let me know if you’d like any more specific details on how to make this maxi skirt.
