Here’s my first outfit for the Me Made May challenge. I made this maxi skirt on Saturday from some cotton batik that was in my stash. Since I didn’t really have a pattern for it, I just made a guess at what I thought it would be, basted that together and then pinned the sides till I liked it better. I need to go back and add slits as it’s just a bit too small for a good sized step.
Other than the step size issue, I’m absolutely in love with it! This is my first maxi length skirt that I’ve ever worn and I’m a convert. 🙂 There will definitely be more in my future.
I also made the wrap, but that was so long ago I can’t even remember when. It was some where post college and before meeting my husband. That’s a window of 5-8 years. It’s a well worn piece, even though I had no idea what I was doing and the finishing on it isn’t very good. I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a double needle to do the edges so there’s some not pretty top stitching (on knit!). Anyway, I still love it and wear it pretty often.
