When you follow this skirt tutorial with Anna Maria, not only will you finish with a stunner of a bias cut maxi skirt that will take you into fall and beyond – but you will also learn a bundle of techniques. Anna Maria shows you how to draft and sew a maxi skirt based on your own body measurements, as well as how to strip piece fabric to make the feathers, and then needle-turn applique them around the hem.
Here’s what you’ll need:
  • One solid fabric for the skirt (3 yards of 44" wide fabric)
  • One yard contrasting solid for stem of feathers
  • 4-5 different patterned fabrics for the feathers (1/2 yard each)
  • 1" wide elastic a little bit longer than the circumference of your waist line
  • Sewing machine and matching thread.
