Me Made: Anthropologie's Patagonian Maxi Skirt Knock-Off

Last post of my skirt kick. I haven't made any or thought of any new ones since finishing this one. I wanted a maxi skirt and fell in love with Anthropologie's Patagonian Maxi Skirt. I love how simple it is and the stripes.
I couldn't find gray striped fabric but I did find tan striped fabric. Can't even tell the difference in the fabric besides the stripes, eh?
It is super comfy, and I love not shaving.
It also helps a little against mosquitoes! Or maybe I just taste gross to mosquitoes.
Instead of doing an elastic waistband, I added a drawstring so I can cinch it up or let it out as I need. The only other difference between my skirt and Anthropologie's skirt is that mine has one center back seam while they have two side seams. I went with something simpler.
My lovely sister took these photos for me because she was working on her swimsuit at my apartment. (It's almost done!) We got a little crazy. Want to see some bloopers? I have a great face.
Happy Friday!

  2. LOL! I love the bloopers! I am big on easy skirts that don't need patterns. I DO need to find a good pattern for my next Hawaii dress though...eek!

    1. I use a couple inches longer than the length I need. It's usually about a yard and a half.
