I did it. I made (and wore) my first maxi skirt. I thought I couldn't pull it off, but I actually like it! I am only 5'2, so I didn't think they would work for me, but it did!
Maxi skirts are great because they are so versatile. You can wear them all year. They are comfortable and yet polished. You can wear them to chase the kids around or wear them to work. I'm thinking this one won't be my last. Especially since they are so easy to make. The other advantage to making it yourself is that you can make it exactly the length you need, which is really important for this style.
What do you think? Do you wear maxi skirts? What are your favorite ways to style them?
