Rain rain go away! Yes it’s another chilly, rainy morning here but the good news is that the sun (remember?!) will come out this afternoon! With that in mind, my 3rd #MMM16 post ¬†features another layered look that accommodates our variable, New England weather.

I have made this maxi skirt several times for my daughter and myself. It’s such a versatile wardrobe piece. Using Simplicity pattern #S0563, I had just a couple pattern alterations. I found that the yoga fold over style waistband, which we love, was too wide and bulky. After experimenting, I ended up cutting down the width of the waistband down by half. Also I added 2″ to the length. The ponte weight horizontal stripe cotton knit is from Mood NYC. Can’t wait to make another one!
