Yesterday as I was planning out an awesome fancy pleated skirt, I realized that the expensive yardage that I bought at Britex was not enough. I should’ve bought two yards of the stuff, but oh well. I made a maxi skirt. It’s super boring, but with the rad floral print, you don’t really even notice. And I don’t even care. I’ll be pairing this floral with summer, fall and spring items for sure. I love the print!!
I sewed it similarly to my single seam pencil skirt, but I added a waistband and tailored the seam to fall at the side instead of back. I made a slit with a curved hem on either side, which allows for more leg room for running around. If I were doing it again, I would sew the slit much higher. Like another 10-12 inches.
I love it, but between the cost of the fabric and my time, this skirt would be something like $100 in a store. Not sure I would pay $100 for a simple maxi.
Talk about a serious mix of high and low here.
