Maxi Skirt

I don't often get a chance to sew with knits so when I spotted some knit fabric on the clearance table at Spotlight I just had to get some.

After some consideration I decided to make myself a skirt. I followed the instructions from here and adjusted the length to make a maxi skirt.

The top of the skirt is gathered before its attached to the yoga style waistband. I used my new walking foot for this project and it made such a difference to how the hem looks (remember the issues I had with the hem on this skirt). 

I love how it turned out and doesn't the colour just scream Summer? Makes me happy just looking at it.
