Another Maxi Skirt

Have I told you how much I LOVE Fridays? I know that's not a radical proposition as for most people it's the end of the week and so they do too. Actually, Thursday is usually the end of my work week and Friday is my day to do what I want. It's also the only day that the hubby and I have a few child free hours to pretend that we are carefree. I usually spend the time running errands, trying to beat the Saturday crowds at places like the grocery store, the mall and Target and inevitably the day includes a lunch date with my boo.

I found this tank at Wal-Mart a few weeks back and bought it just because I liked the colors. A week or two later, I bought this knit at FabricMart in this color and yellow and what do you know they both match the tank perfectly! Since we are in the middle of a heat wave and I love to wear new clothes, last night, I thought it would be a good idea to whip up a maxi to go with the tank.





I love this fabric, it drapes beautifully, is light weight and great for the summer. I've been really making a concerted effort to upgrade even my running around town clothes because it makes me feel better.

This time I used Mimi G.'s method of using the two panels because of the weight of the fabric, I wanted the additional fullness. I also decided to leave the hem raw because it looks pretty cool AND that made it even faster to finish.

I still haven't finished the dress I'm wearing to dinner tomorrow, so . . .

See you soon.

  1. I love pink, orange and yellow together. Work it girl. I was thinking that a maxi dress may not be age appropriate for me but I think I'm going to give it a try. TFS
