Description

Here’s my latest attempt to use up some of the material I already have and make some clothes suitable for our Hawaii trip.

I followed the chiffon maxi skirt pattern on here, which was easy to follow although I would have liked a size chart – I just cut it based on my waist measurements and then realised that the lining was too tight on my hips so I had to add a panel. Luckily this was in the lining not the outer fabric, so it’s not very obvious.
On top of that and out of sheer laziness, I would have liked actual pattern pieces for the skirt so I didn’t have to do all the measuring. Apart from that it was clear to follow and a fairly simple project…

I put in an invisible zip, but followed my own method rather than the pattern. Then fastened the top with a button and a loop – I think it’s my new favourite way to finish that top edge (I added one to my last dress too)!

Material Notes

Silk chiffon
Lightweight interfacing
Some kind of drapey crepe for the lining?
