4 step DIY maxi skirt with optional slits. Shoes: Sam edelman sunglasses: h&m Nothing makes me feel more feminine than a maxi skirt, especially a maxi skirt that shows a little leg. The slits not only adds a little vavavoom, but adds a pretty flow as you walk and move in it. I was shocked at how dang easy this was to make. Even though working with 3 yards of fabric can be a pain in the but, everything else was smooth sailing. I’m in love with this skirt! I just have to make it in a pretty floral to match this upcoming summer. Supplies: 2-3 yards of light knit fabric, avoid thick or interlock (see step 1 for the amount you will need) elastic (I chose black 1″ wide elastic) thread sewing machine scissors Instructions: 1. Option a – outside elastic: mark the elastic and skirt into quarters, then pin those quarters together laying the elastic over the top of the skirt lining up the edge of the skirt with the elastic.
