This blog hosts a challenge for home sewers who want to commit to sewing their own wardrobe (or certain parts of your wardrobe :-). Our goal is to not purchase RTW clothing from January 1, 2015 thru December 31, 2015. Follow our journey as we share and encourage each other through tips, tutorials, and various challenges. Thanks for dropping by!
ok so I read so many different versions of the Maxi skirt are all basicly the same, front, back & waa laa so how hard can this be, it's just a long skirt for goodness sake, this project could of went in the slapp stich section I kid you not, I measured, then wrapped the fabric around me twice then even sized it up with a straight line skirt pattern & they all came out the same size so I was good to go, so I thought 1st attempt it was 3 times to big so I un do some of the waitband wack off 2"from each side, still too big this went on at least three times ,before it was over with I cut it up the back & wacked off 3" from each side , still too big!seems like the more I fooled with it the bigger it got lol! finally gave up & said don't care what I look like I'm a wearing this skirt tomarrow lol! I thnk a lot of the problem is the size of the elastic, it needs to be wider so it'll lay flat, another project for another day! Happy sewing ! Helen
