It's time for another Style Me Friday and this week's inspiration is the maxi skirt. This is another piece that I didn't have in my wardrobe so I of course had to make me one. :-) I had some purple knit fabric that didn't have any seams and was tube like so I only had to add elastic to the waist. Since knit doesn't fray, I didn't hem the bottom of the skirt. Super Easy!!
Since I was using 1 inch elastic, I ironed flat a 1 1/2 inch hem around the top of the skirt.
Topstitch around the edge of the hem leaving an 1/2 inch opening.
Pin a safety pin to one side of the elastic and thread through the opening.
Continue to push the pin and elastic until you reach the other side of the opening.
Place both ends of the elastic together and topstitch. Cut off the excess.
Straighten out the elastic and adjust until it is flat. Stitch the opening closed.
