Featured: The Best, Easy Knit Maxi Skirt Tutorial

In hot weather, I’m the most comfortable in a skirt. I especially love this skirt because:

  1. It’s easy to make.
  2. It’s so chic!

Want to make one (or ten) of your very own? Check out the awesome tutorial over at The Train to Crazy!

  • Knit fabric – You will create your pattern to determine how much you need. 
  • 1 inch knit elastic – Do not buy No-Roll elastic for this skirt because you will be sewing on the elastic.
  • A measuring tape to take your own measurements
  • Fabric scissors or a rotary cutter and cutting mat
  • Coodinating thread
  • Sewing machine or serger
  • Ballpoint needle for your sewing machine or serger
  • Pins
  • Optional: large pattern paper (or use measurements to create the pattern directly on the fabric. read all the steps first so you don’t cut the fabric before the pattern is complete!)
