I hope you are having a marvelous Monday thus far.  Today’s look features a diy navy maxi skirt that I self drafted and this lovely long sleeved off the shoulder tee from ASOS tall! My skirt is made from a navy ponte knit fabric that I acquired a couple of years ago from my local Fabric Mart when I was in Hawaii and just now got around to using it. It simply consists of me wrapping the the fabric around my waist and adding a few extra inches .  I then cut down the portion I needed.  I took that folded it in half and then then cut the folded so I had two pieces.  I sewed both sides up, then took some 3/4″ elastic and wrapped it around my waist, stretched it a little where I felt comfortable and then cut it.  I sewed the ends of the elastic together and then folded the waistband of my skirt down over it and sewed it all around. Then I hemmed the bottom of the skirt and voila.  I really like it a lot and would have loved it if I had remembered to add pockets to it..lol  That is the only thing missing.  But I will be making several more of these in different colors and lighter weight fabrics with pockets.  Style Tip: I’ve noticed that adding a wide belt to simple elastic waist skirts, really help to take them up a notch. What do you think?
