YouTube Tutorial: How To Make A Maxi Skirt

Maxis are all the rage this summer. I adore this popular trend ever so much and recently had a request for a video tutorial on how to make a maxi skirt because of my previous maxi creation a few weeks ago, so here it tisssss finallyyy!


I wore a turquoise and white pattern chiffon top with this light pink maxi skirt. The color combination is superb, if I do say so myself. ;)


I found this silk polyester fabric at Walmart for $1.50 a yard, so I bought 4 yards of it but only used a yard for the maxi skirt. I have many plans for the rest of this gorgeous fabric.

The front and back of the maxi skirt. The elastic waist gave the skirt some natural, simple pleats.



A chic summer look that cannot go wrong-- it is perfectly comfortable and pretty for a daytime get together or a night out.

  3. So cute! Maxi skirts at retail stores sometimes intimidate me because they're typically cut for model tall/model thin women. I think learning to sew your own maxi skirt is a great idea since it ensures that the skirt is just the right length and fit. Thanks for vid :)
