Tutorial Tuesday :: Mismatched Maxi Skirt from iCandy Handmade

One of the many benefits of sewing your own handmade wardrobe is that you can customize and create one of a kind pieces. I was thrilled to find this Mismatched Maxi Skirt Tutorial from Jen of iCandy Handmade, which features a basic stripe fabric cut and pieced together in a completely unique way. For the body of the skirt, Jen links to her favorite free skirt sewing pattern (available in a size Medium) PLUS a free tutorial for creating your own custom fitting skirt pattern. Click here for the entire tutorial and happy sewing!

To match up the stripes in their designated positions, Jen shares this helpful illustration along with corresponding written directions. Once the top and bottom pieces are cut out and attached, the rest of the skirt takes hardly any time to sew!

Depending on the look and feel that you want, most stretch knits including Cotton Jersey and Cotton Lycra will be perfect for your new skirt. Shop our entire collection of Stripe Fabrics here. A few of my picks from the store:
