Mismatched Striped Maxi Skirt

I absolutely love knit skirts and could live in them all summer. Light, breezy, flowy, and feminine. The problem with making them is finding cute knit fabrics for a reasonable price. This is why I usually end up buying them, but THIS skirt cost me $7 to make. And so I had to make one….and I made several others with the fun knits I found!

I didn’t pay more than $5/yard for any of these. In fact, the grey and white striped fabric I used for this skirt was $3.60/yard. They were all purchased from Girl Charlee. It’s a great online shop. Some of the knits were pretty thin. I have to wear a long slip with the skirt in the photo or else it is fairly see-through, but my long slip worked perfectly and did the trick. It just depends on which type of knit you purchase.
I didn’t use a pattern for the other skirts I made. I just winged it and styled them after the yoga band  skirts I bought from Old Navy a couple of years ago. Knee length.
I wanted to do something different with this fun striped fabric and so I turned to iCandyHandmade and made her Mismatched Maxi Skirt.
 I was a little bigger than her measurements and so I  had to add 2 inches in the width. She gives instructions for making a basic A-line knit skirt as well if you choose to not do the mismatched route.
Kaylee saw Derrick taking a picture of me in my new skirt and decided to jump in for a picture too. All ready for church! She did change her shoes before leaving the house :)
I think I need to make another one…. now to decide which fabric to choose this time!

      Hi Jamie! Are you LDS? If so, you can order it online from the distribution center. That’s where I got mine, but you have to be a member of our church to order clothing from there.

          I just wore the full length temple one. I wish it was easier to find slips in general, especially the longer ones. And they are so expensive! That’s why I just bought an extra one from the distribution center to wear with long dresses. Good luck!
