Hello, I just discovered your blog and there’s great stuff in it! Is it possible to get some information about how to sew a maxi skirt as well?
Hi! Maxi skirts are indeed quite trendy these days. I can see it on almost everyone when I walk around the streets, with various colors and patterns. I, however, got really bored with wearing maxi skirts, since they used to be my no.1 outfit when I was in university. So, you probably won’t see any maxi dress sewing posts from me :) However, let me try to guide you in making a maxi skirt by yourself with easy to make steps.
You may find quite useful tips in sewing a basic skirt from this post: Watch and Learn Grasshopper: Sewing a Basic Skirt
Follow the steps described in here to make a basic skirt pattern. Then, starting from the fullest part of your hip extend the side line like a triangle that you add on the original side line on the skirt pattern.
You can lengthen the skirt as much as you like now. You can either leave it at the knee level, lengthen it down to your ankles or even longer! Use the right accessories to go with your skirt and you’ll have a hip and stylish outfit in no time!
