Maxi Skirt Collab with GoToSew.Com + GirlCharlee.com

So, Its September, eh? And while it most certainly doesn’t feel like Fall (hello, 109* on my car thermometer) its will be here before we know it! There’s always this awkward period of time between Summer and Fall in Texas… if you live here, you know what I mean. Its FREAKING hot outside, but yet our hearts are telling us to wear clothes to bundle up in and throw out our Summer dresses for jeans and scarves. While I’m not ready to whip out scarves anytime soon, I *do* think a wardrobe switcheroo can still be done. Which brings me to the topic of maxi skirts.Over a year ago, I posted my 10 minute maxi skirt DIY… which many of you loved oh so much! I don’t blame you, really. Who can beat creating your own piece of clothing in (literally) less than 10 minutes?!I thought it would be a good idea to take a peek back into the archives and dig up that old DIY and revamp it.. and with a little help from my friends at GoToSew.com + GirlCharlee.com
we have the new and improved 10 Minute Maxi Skirt DIY!

For this DIY, you’ll need about 1 1/2 yards of KNIT fabric (depending on your length), a package of 3/4″-1″ elastic, and coordinating thread.
Girl Charlee sent me this GORGEOUS Aztec print cotton jersey knit that screams Fall to me, so that’s what I chose to use for this project.
You’ll start by measuring your waist (or where you want your skirt to hit) to the floor (or where you want your hem to be. Add 1.5″ to this measurement.. this is the length you’ll cut your fabric. For the width, we are just going to use the width of the fabric… knit fabric is typically on a 54″-60″ wide bolt, which is perfect for this project! You’ll also want to measure the amount of elastic you’ll need. Fit it comfortably around your waist, overlap 1″, and cut.
