The perfect Maxi Skirt pattern

Maxi Skirt pattern

Maxi Skirt pattern

There are basically two types of maxi skirt – a low volume skirt that is not gathered and basically looks like a long nearly straight skirt when worn, and a gathered maxi skirt, which has a lot more volume to it and gathers either at the waist or hips.  For some body sizes and shapes, the low volume skirt gives a much more flattering and sleeker look than one with gathers and lots of fabric.

After experimenting with a few variations here is the perfect formula for a flattering low-volume maxi skirt pattern that is fitted through the waist and hips but still allows you room to move, run after the kids and walk up stairs.  Here’s how to do it.
