Chiffon Maxi Skirt

You know I had a crush on this Forever 21 full maxi skirt. I'm not sure, I think I saw it online or from one of the local Forever 21 ambassadors, but I haven't seen it from any of the Forever 21 stores in the metro. I guess they're all gone and no more stocks. So anyway, I pushed myself to make a maxi skirt instead of paying for a similar skirt for hundreds of pesos from a different store. Here's the outcome of the project.










I know it doesn't have a full skirt. I bought a couple and a half of yards of chiffon fabric and another couple of yards of gina cloth for this project. It just didn't work. I had so much trial and error with this one. My sewing machine didn't work for a couple of times. I had to allow 3 days to finish this project and on the second day, I was close to throwing my machine outside my window. Arrghhh.. I really need to get a decent sewing machine soon!


Materials Used:
-chiffon fabric
-gina cloth
-zipper
-thread
-hook and eye

Total Cost: P115


I did not achieve the look that I really wanted but I'm already happy with the finish product.
Till my next project ladies!

  5. That's such a cool skirt. I sew too, it's a lot easier to alter sizes and hemlines that way.
