I can’t help but fall in love with all these long, flowy maxi skirts that keep popping up on my fashion radar! Cool and breezy, with a touch of bohemian chic, they simply rock. The great thing about these pieces is how easy they are to create – with my basic basic sewing knowledge I was able to make one in 15 minutes. Here’s how:

(Get more ideas at my blog: Craft Medley!)

What you will need:
* 2 yards of sheer fabric
* Thread
* Sewing machine and/or needle
* ½ inch width elastic (at least 1 yard)
* Scissors
* Wire (optional)

Step 1: Cutting out your fabric

Take the following measurements: around your waist where you would want to wear your skirt; around your hips; the length from your waist to the floor. Write these numbers down somewhere to keep track of them!

Begin by cutting out a piece of fabric with a width that is 2 ½-3 times amount of the measurement around your hips, by the length from your waist to the floor plus 3 inches.
Thank you SOOOOOOOOOOO much for this tutorial. It's going to help me revamp my entire wardrobe!
