Maxi Skirt DIY Video Tutorial

You asked for it… and I’ve delivered!

My maxi skirt tutorial is now LIVE! Watch it HERE!

This project is easy and fun! Once you make one you will start cranking out a bunch more. No pattern needed.  I teach you to take two simple measurements of your body and use that to cut your fabric pieces.  This tutorial is NOT for an elastic waistband maxi skirt. I’m all for elastic waistbands in some projects but this isn’t one of them. Personally, I don’t like the way they look with a long flowy skirt.  So, I opted for a smoother more comfortable option- a folded knit waistband. It’s kind of like a yoga waistband.  You’ll see what I mean in the video.  This is the most comfortable way for me to wear my maxi. 
I made three of these skirts in no time at all and here are some pictures so you can see the variety.

Fabric for all my skirts is from
and can be purchased here:

All their fabric is while supplies last ONLY. So, once they’re gone…That’s it! Go get you some! Their prices are ridiculous! The blue cotton chambray is only $1.99 per yard. 

I bought 9 more yards last week after I made this first maxi skirt. I have soooo many plans for this fabric including making myself some tops and dyeing it!

    Hi, I’m new at sewing and I’m trying to make this maxi skirt. I have a question, what settings did you use on your ruffler foot?
