I fell in love with a beautiful wide striped full circle maxi skirt I saw online. I purchased the skirt, but when I received the item – it was nothing like the picture. More like a sack on with an elastic band. I was quite upset but decided to make the skirt myself. Toughest part was finding the fabric as I wanted wide black&white striped crepe or satin. I didn’t find anything that I liked, so I settled on a lovely zebra-printed crepe.
I didn’t make the pattern for the skirt, just calculated the waist circumference and the length. The skirt sits on the waist and has a side zipper. Initially I was planning to line the skirt, but decided to skip it as the fabric was not that sheer. The skirt has more movement this way.
