Chiffon for Hawaii

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)!
