|My First Maxi Skirt. Pattern by Simple Simon and Company at SimpleSimonandco.com|
The beauty of this pattern is that it runs from a XS to a 2XL so just about anyone can enjoy wearing this skirt. Thank the designers. My biggest challenge was working with the elastic. If you look at the picture you will see that the elastic is attached directly to the skirt. You may see more and more easy projects where you just attach the knit elastic to the material to make thes easy skirts. The 1"- 2" knit elastic comes in a variety of colors. It is very soft and does stretch very nicely without losing its shape. My challenge was stretching it to get a good fit to the skirt as I was attaching it. I'm going to keep making some more so that I can get this down a little more efficiently. Now some things I attempted while trying to make this skirt.
You can make this skirt either with a regular sewing machine using a stretch stitch or with a serger. I also had a serger cutter attachment foot which performs like a serger but on a regular sewing machine.
The designers of the pattern estimate that the skirt is a 20-30 minute project. How cool is that? Well with that my friends I will go ahead and sign off.
I encourage you to give this project a try. Post your comments and photos.
