Maxi skirts and dresses were one of those trends that I thought I’d never get sucked in to. I don’t know if it was the negative connotation I had with the word “maxi,” or if it was just the fact that a floor length skirt seemed so pioneer to me, but either way I wasn’t a huge fan when these skirts hit the runway.
Then I started seeing people actually wear them, and they looked so soft and comfy, like a big blanket around their legs all day. But they still looked pretty and feminine, and not one bit pioneer-ish!
Oh, and I became good friends with Leanne, who is currently the queen of rocking the maxi skirt, and made me covet every outfit she wore. Seriously, when I have another baby I’m wearing a maxi skirt every day just so I can look like her.
So yesterday I pulled up Leanne’s tutorial and made myself a maxi. It would have taken no time at all except for the full two side seams that I sewed and then had to unpick (without a seam ripper!) because the skirt was like a suction cup to my hips. Cute. I think that’s a pretty clear sign that I need to start working out regularly again…
