How I Wore It – DIY Striped Maxi

image

I made this striped Maxi Skirt with matching sash using 2.5 yards of cotton picked up from one of the local discount fabric stores.

It has a flat front band with elastic in the back to accommodate my changing waistline.

No pattern used here. The front has free formed pleats and the back soft gathers. This was a trial piece to see how I would like wearing this style. I like it! I can definitely see myself making more of these in the future with just a few slight adjustments to the design.

Because of the busy stripes, I decided to pair this skirt with a simple black racer back tank.  To pull out the blue from the skirt, I paired it with a cobalt blue statement necklace and cobalt framed sunnies.
