Maxi Skirt

I love this maxi skirt! I found the tutorial 
Elle is SUPER talented! I love her cardigan tutorial too, I have not tried that one yet.
The first skirt I made was brown knit, I made the waist too big. I didn't think about how it would stretch and the weight of the fabric would pull it down. I found this material at Joann's for $3/yard! It was 50% off of the clearance price. Lucky break! It is way more flattering, it's some kind of knit blend. Sorry for the dark, horrible pictures. It really does look good in real life. I did not wear this shirt with it either. I chose a cream colored shirt, not tucked in. It's a super comfy skirt, perfect for church or a night out with the hubs. Elle is using it as a maternity skirt, genius! 


  1. Jen, I love that this maxi skirt is homemade so you can customize the length! I can NEVER find them long enough, my feet always show and I hate that! Great job!

  2. Thanks! THe best part is that you don't even have to hem knit.
