Maxi Skirting It Up - New Look 6762

My second maxi skirt pattern this week.  I have noticed that I often host pattern duels in my sewing room.  It is a strange habit.  If I want to make something specific, I find two different patterns for it and make them up together.  I usually end up loving one and never using the other pattern again.  I guess I figure if I only made one and ended up with the dud I would lose out or something.  Anyway, enough of my crazy.  This is New Look 6762.
It is a very simple make......another under an hour skirt.  I used a ITY knit for Colorado Fabrics.  

I didn't match my side seams.......but don't tell anyone!  

This skirt has a simple elastic waistband and it is very comfortable.  As much as I like the fold over waistbands that are all the rage......the simple elastic ones are easier to wear.


  1. Beautiful, Vicki. It looks so comfy and cool. It is also in my summer colors!

  2. It's lovely, a great print. I agree that elastic waist band are so comfy. You made this in an hour? Wow. I must be a very slow sewer!

    1. Thank you! This is one of my favorite patterns......easier than pajama pants.
