McCall's 6966 - Maxi Skirt

I took advantage of one of those one-day sales at Mood and purchased a lovely bright green Ikat jersey knit, which I knew would be perfect for McCall"s 6966:

I sewed up View C, which is the black print on the pattern envelope, but without the ruched waistband. And the waistband? So clever! I've been sewing many years now, but I've never applied an elastic waistband in this way, and I must say I plan to use this technique again! The elastic encased in the wider band keeps it unseen, yet gives the support necessary.

 




This skirt is so flowey, which I tried to show in the less-than-flattering picture below:



                               
       

                               

                              Summer is officially over, but here in the Midwest it is still warm and sunny.
                              I plan to continue to wear my new skirt into the fall/winter, with boots and a
                              belted cardigan perhaps. And I plan to make the shorter version in the future.
