Double slit maxi skirt

I made this skirt over the summer and have had many compliments and a few of my friends would like me to make one for them! I decided to make the same skirt but in white...and oh the possibilities when it comes to dying the white fabric. I love this skirt because it is so cute and comfortable to wear.This skirt is very easy to make if you can follow a few easy steps.

The first thing you need to do is make an elastic belt. If you already have an elastic belt you can use that for measurement. You can also measure against your own waist but pull a little tight how you would wear it.

Then you need to decide how long you would like the skirt. I am only 5ft so my skirt is about 40 inches long, starting at my waist down to the floor. I made it about 1.5 inches longer to finish off the edges.

The skirt is made out of two pieces of material that over lap at the sides. The larger panel of material covers the back side and the front piece makes the slit. The back panel measures around the back and stops around where your hip bone would be. You want to make both of these panels 3-5 inches wider to save room to gather. If you do not gather these pieces of material it will not have the flowing look. The front panel is about an inch longer to cover the front of the skirt.
