First comment – there is nothing Maxi about this skirt. It has a dipped hem that is shorter in the centre front and back and longer at the sides, and is really a Midi length. There are lines marked on the pattern piece for shortening or lengthening, so it would be easy to adjust either way and make it into a maxi if you wished, but it isn’t a maxi in it’s current form.
The fabric is viscose knit from Spotlight, which were scraps left from a Cherish dress that I recently made for my Mum (unblogged). Because I was working with scraps I had to cut the skirt with centre front and centre back seams, and the pattern doesn’t match terrible well either. It’s a scrap skirt. I finished the hem with the rolled hem setting on my overlocker. The waistline is a simple turned over casing with elastic threaded through it and adjusted to fit.
This is a size 8/9, the largest size offered, but would be simple to alter. I will remake this pattern in a better fabric, but Clare is still happy enough with her wearable muslin. I wonder how it would be for a winter skirt, layered with leggings? Hmmmm.
There are other patterns in the bundle that will be good basics. I’m looking forward to making the raglan tee and the pullover – with a winter-weight skirt!
