Better than Jammies!

In case you don't know me, I am tall. I'm not REALLY tall...I mean...I have several friends who are taller than me.  5 '8 1/2" in stocking feet.  Pants shopping is a nightmare because, well....according to my husband and offspring...I have freakishly long arms and legs.  Why can men go into a store, choose their waist and inseam and walk out with a pair of pants that fit?  I have many pants that I pretend were meant to be "ankle length"...a more fashionable term than the "floods" from my younger years.

Along comes the maxi skirt trend.  I found one that had enough yardage and  have since been searching every store I enter desperate to find another that is long enough.  What could possible be more comfortable?  Seriously....they're better than pajamas, and much more attractive!

What's a girl to do?!  Google to the rescue!  I googled "easy maxi skirt" and I was introduced to Big Boo Little Boo.  She has a tutorial that is so easy that even a mediocre seamstress like I can follow.  Check out her Easiest Jersey Maxi Skirt tutorial and give it a go!
(Pardon the poor quality photo, but I was in a hurry to go out and buy more fabric)
