Last week I showed you the pencil case I made for my niece Paisley while she was visiting. We also spent an hour or so making a maxi skirt for her first day of college.
I had picked up this emerald green (it’s more emerald than it looks in these photos) at Michael Levine during Fabric Weekend, not knowing exactly what I’d use it for until Paisley and I searched through my stash of knits.
We added a simple yoga style waistband, and my only regret is that I wish the fabric had a bit better stretch recovery. The downside to using such a soft knit was that the skirt grew in length once Paisley started wearing it, which isn’t super ideal since she lives in rainy Vancouver. I guess she may need to come visit again for an adjustment :).
