Maxi Skirt DIY Tutorial – with Jersey Modal Knit!

Thank you so much for sharing!

Hi Everyone!  A lot of people think sewing with knits is scary, I did!  But with a few simple tools, it’s really easy!  It is such a forgiving material and looks great on everyone!

Fabric Requirements (Knits are usually 60 inches wide, so you need less yardage)
My skirt was 39 inches across the bottom, and 39 inches long. (before sewing)
So, 1 and 1/4 yard is enough if it is the proper width.

To give you an idea, I am a size 6 and 5’9… usually a size medium. My skirt is extra long because I wanted to wear it slightly high waisted. If you like to wear your skirts lower, make sure you measure at that spot.

To get an accurate waist measurement, measure around the part of your waist you would like the skirt to sit. Use that measurement plus 1/2 inch to insure a comfortable fit.

My black fabric is a jersey knit with modal and lots of stretch. Here are some similar items I have found from one of my favorite online knit sources.

I like that I can wear this high-waisted with a belt for a fancier look or make it more casual.
