I’ve been pinning a ton of tutorials on maxi skirts to see how others make them. I’m not sure why but I just prefer to keep mine with one back seam using one large piece of fabric instead of using two pieces and having two side seams.
After doing the straight stitch, tug at the thread strings to gather the top of the skirt. Once it’s gathered, make sure the gathering is evenly spread. Now, sew down the back seam creating your skirt.
Now, attach the waistband with a straight stitch.
I prefer a wider waistband so that I can fold it over (though a thinner waistband works just as well!). Now, admire your work!
