Striped Stretch Maxi Skirt

I just love when a project comes together in less than two hours! This skirt is so easy to sew and the silhouette is casual yet classy. I used a striped jersey and cut the back with the stripes going in the opposite direction than the front piece. Then for the large pleat in the front piece (since I didn’t have any snaps), I folded the pleat according to the directional arrows on the pattern and basted into place. Then instead of utilizing the casing on the pattern, I used black elastic as a waistband and stitching to the top of my skirt.

My favorite part of this skirt is the side slit and it also makes a great coverup! I wore it this past long weekend at a cottage over my suit to and from the beach – it was perfection.

Material Notes

Striped stretch jersey.
