Friday Fabulousness.....Mini maxi skirt


I had this lavender lace & did not quite know what to make with it.  I have been making quite a few of maxi skirts & dresses & after some thought I decided on a mini maxi skirt.....I am pretty sure someone else has thought of this...... although I could not find the name on Google.....if you know of another name for it let me know......for now I call it a mini maxi skirt.


Once I decided on a skirt........ the inspiration for the style came from my Nanny's ring........as I remember her wearing this ring & she loved lace too.


I cut & measured myself for 3 rectangle pieces...............


I made a simple gathered waist of elastic......hem the sides....a really simple lace skirt.


You have to use your imagination & picture this skirt worn on a beach (not on a car lift in my husbands garage) which is where I will be wearing it in a couple of weeks on my vacation.......


~ wishing you a weekend of fabulousness ~

Hello Coco!
In Spain we call them "faldas asimétricas" = Asymmetrical Skirts.

I love the color.
