With the leftover fabric from this dress, I decided to make myself a maxi skirt. I bought a simple black maxi last winter and it is probably the most comfortable thing I have ever worn. For a while now, I've been wanting to knock it off, and that is exactly what I did! I used the skirt to make a pattern and now I can make a million replicas if I want. Hooray!
The skirt is only 2 pattern pieces because the front and back are the same and the fold-over waistband is made with just two slightly trapezoidal rectangles.
This skirt was one of the fastest things I've ever made. It seriously sewed up in about a half hr. I started before dinner, ate yummy mediterranean food and drank too much wine and then serged on the waistband when we got home. So easy a tipsy person could do it!
I waited a week to photograph it because I wanted to do it on location and just didn't have the time or energy to do it before now. After work, my brain is fried. I get up around 6am every morning and by 9:30 or 10pm I crash. I've only been doing little sewing projects like this on the weekends.
Thanks to the Boyfriend for going to the beach with me for literally 5 minutes! We couldn't find a parking space and parked illegally just to get these pictures. :)
