Found some amazingly cheap jersey and wanted to make a top out of it. Bought soooo much of it that when I came home I decided to make a skirt instead. I’m a Maxi skirt/dress kind of gal, so why not? Like the only thing I wear!

This is the result anyways.

(Awesome for Swedish summers btw. Since this summer has been such a disappointment weather wise).

Thanks to Amanda Olofsson for the pictures.

Material Notes

A bit over a yard (depending on how tall (or short! Haha) you are) of jersey, elastic band and thread.

      Thanks! So do I! Really love the Blazer, vintage catch, with shoulder pads. Fantastic! (Gave me the opportunity to finally have myself some shoulders ;) )

      So do I! I’ve made it a habit to never buy skirts, even though it’s often cheaper, but it’s so easy to make one that no one else has!

      And then, sometimes, you find some cheap fabric on sale or something, and BAM. Great skirt, almost for free. Who can’t love that? :D
