- Once you have a pattern. Start by cutting out your fabric. When you cut out your fabric make sure that your pattern pieces are laying the correct direction with relation to the stretch of your fabric. I may have had to cut the waistband out twice because I wasn't paying attention. Think of how it will stretch when it is on you. On my fancy drawing the pattern pieces should stretch left to right the way they are positioned. Cut 2 of each pieces on the fold
- With right sides together sew/serge the side seams of the skirt. With right sides together sew/serge the side of the band pieces together. You should have two tube-ish shapes (one for the band one for the skirt).
- Fold the band so the seams are on the inside. Pin to the INSIDE of the skirt raw edges together. Sew/serge around the top to attach the band to the skirt. Flip the band out over the right side of the skirt.
- Do a happy dance because you just made an awesome maxi skirt. Make 10 more!
