A maxi skirt is a long skirt that reaches down to the ground or near the ankles. It is a versatile and flattering garment that can be worn in any season and styled in many different ways. Maxi skirts have been around for a long time, but they became especially popular in the late 1960s and early 1970s, when hippies favored them for their flowing and bohemian look1. Since then, maxi skirts have come in and out of fashion, but they are always a classic and timeless choice.

To sew a maxi skirt without using a pattern, you will need some fabric of your choice, preferably with some stretch, a sewing machine, thread, scissors, pins, a measuring tape, and an elastic band for the waistband. You will also need to measure yourself and cut the fabric according to your size and desired length. Then, you will sew the seams, make the waistband, and hem the skirt. It’s that simple!

The impact of fabrics on the final appearance of the skirt and the modifications you can make with them:

 1. Very flowy, delicate fabrics

 This group of fabrics looks extremely impressive! You can choose a material with a gloss, satin or light, even translucent effect. The downside of such fabrics is that they are, unfortunately, difficult to sew because they move and are difficult to control, so be sure to load the cut and sewn fabric, even with pebbles. Before sewing, remember about stabilization – it is worth gluing or basting all seams for peace of mind.

 2. Middle ground fabrics - neither flowing nor holding shape

source 1,2

 This group includes mainly fabrics of natural origin , cotton cambrics, softer linen. This is the most popular group of fabrics, because they are quite easy to sew! They are neither too thick (like denim or artificial leather), nor do they shift when sewing like flowing materials from the first group.

I highly recommend them for all beginners !

3.   The last main group: heavy weight and thick fabrics

 Think about denim , real and fake leather, thick linen, those are all fabrics which hold their shape tightly. Any stiff fabric strongly sticks out from the body and breaks into thick folds.



 For sewing, use special needles and clips instead of pins so as not to make holes in the fabric! I use heavy duty metal ones, those plastics breaks very fast.

 4. "Fan'' fabrics

I don't recommend them for beginners but after some practice , go get it !

For sure they level up  and add some spice to every plain skirt
