Maxi-Skirt

We called them maxi-skirts back in the '70's. Now they are popular again. Even kindergarteners want one, it seems! I used some double gauze fabric purchased recently from Sunny Day Fabrics to make Lula's dream come true...
I've used this Burda 9442 pattern before and knew that it was a great fit and cute style. The double gauze is so soft and drapey...perfect for a skirt.
This time, I used a coordinating fabric for the yoke, left off the bow and created the longer version.
 Some things never go out of style!

  1. Oh, wow, that took me right back. I can actually feel that skirt flowing around my ankles. A literal blast from the past!

  3. Gotta love that cute smile in the last photo. The yoke idea is a very nice addition.

  4. Oh, it's too cute! I don't believe I've ever sewn with double gauze, but it appears to hang very nicely. Good for an adult's skirt too, I'm guessing. You know, I've never been a fan of maxi skirts, but I know many do wear them. Just sort of think it odd to see them here, where it seems to me to be too warm to wear them.
