For a casual-cool modern boho look, you’ll need a
slouchy-fabulous maxi skirt. Try this one, perfect
for lightweight, flowy knits like silk (y) jersey, or
blends of bamboo, modal, and rayon with a little
stretch and lots of drape. You can also make
this in drapey wovens like panne velvet, crinkle
gauze, rayon challis or crepe; just make sure
that you use a stretchy knit for the waistband.

lining and a double thickness waistband to fold
or scrunch, with elastic for ease of wear. Skirt

side panels with a narrow elastic casing for a
controlled but lush and swingy silhouette; the
front pocket openings are done the same way.
This is the perfect style for dressy-casual and
low-key evening looks. Switch up your fabrics
to rock this gorgeous skirt year round; team it
with low-heel boots and a cropped sweater for

spring, a T-shirt and sandals to beat the heat of

favorite old-school sneakers to welcome fall.

I made this skirt one night and wore it the next. I found some dark yellow knit that was shimmery and decided it was worth a try. What a great gamble. I wore this for Christmas mass and then again on New Years. The pattern (and the fabric) were that versatile. I can see myself making a few of these skirts for work, an easy way to dress up and still feel as comfy as can be.
