1/4 Circle Maxi Skirt

Nothing like a quick and easy circle skirt to start your week right.  Spring has finally sprung here in Boston, so I’m breaking out the maxis!  This one is a 1/4 circle made using Fickle Sense’s tutorial.  I’m actually not usually a huge fan of the big flowy skirt, but I think a 1/4 circle makes the perfect maxi. It’s not too big and billowy for my taste, and it has such a sleek waistline.

The skirt is made up in rayon challis.  You might recognize the red in the waistband from my last post. It’s great for a skirt like this, light and airy without being see-through.

I didn’t think a lot about pattern placement because I frankly I don’t usually sew with prints.  The end result is that I don’t love what’s going on in the back here, but I can live with it.

My trusty photographer and I traipsed around Boston this weekend enjoying the weather, and I snuck in some photos everywhere we went. This one was taken in the public garden.

I think the skirt is really complimented by this pricy South End real estate!
