The Maxi Skirt

Everyone knows that the maxi-shirt is all the rage for summer. I, personally, love the long, flowing A-line look and flattering fit. I used Butterick Pattern 3133, shown above.

This was a super-simple, quick pattern to throw together. Simple elastic waist, clean lines, basic hem.

I used a blue checked double stretch knit. The stretch of the fabric presented the usual challenges, but it was otherwise a 2 hour project from start to finish, including cutting and pinning.

All finished, matched with a pretty, yellow polo shirt and flip flops.

There's nothing like a flowing summer skirt.
