I’ve been busy today!!
I made 6 maxi skirts and one knee length with the rest of the dress from the first maxi skirt I made a few weeks ago. The rest of the fabric I already had, or was one of the three colors I ordered from Charlie Girl fabrics!
Heather Grey, believe it or not…it’s jersey knit bed sheets…lots of jersey for a little money! I picked them up on clearance about 2 years ago and still have about 5 yards of it left!
Kelly green…from Charlie Girl. That one is a bit snug around the bum. I wanted it long so I had to use it the narrower way.
This “circus stripe” from my stash. It’s cream, brown, purple, yellow and coral. I love it…but seeing it on I believe it will be one for around the house only!!
This is the cowl neck of that dress from the first maxi skirt I made, It turned out great! Seriously love GW if I can get $5 worth of knit…enough to make 2 skirts. Cha-ching!
Peacock Blue from Charlie girl…I am wearing it now. I love this one. The knit is a bit heavier and stretches a bit more than all of the others.
Chevron from Charlie girl. ❤ The whole reason for my CG order!
And of course all of these can be worn as a dress by simply pulling them up, and rolling the elastic under! Add a belt for some Bump definition and volia!! Instant comfy summer dress!
And if you are counting you’ll notice that is only 5 of the 6 maxis. The last one I made is not jersey, and needs to be hemmed. Which I just didn’t have the energy for after all of that. And it’s a bit bigger in the waist, so I may need to take it in a bit, or wait until The Bump is bigger to wear it.
I am SO happy that I sat down and did this. It took me all of about an hour and a half! They are so much more comfy than pants or anything else I own right now!
