DIY Floral Mimi G Regal Maxi Skirt

This is the original Mimi G tutorial and I have had it for ages but somehow never got around to it.  I actually started making this in July right before leaving for the conference and after staying up all night sewing, just could not finish.  I’m usually a roll with it kind of girl but when my sewing doesn’t go as planned I tend to pout and hold grudges.  I literally put the skirt up on our way out the door in July and refused to touch it again until this week, when in the middle of an unusual heat wave I decided to finish it so I wouldn’t have to wait several months to wear it.


It was hard to get a still shot of the skirt outside because it was super windy but the wind did create some cool shots of the movement of the skirt.




Pattern Description: Regal Maxi Skirt

Pattern Sizing: pattern is drafted to your measurements

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Pretty close, I just didn’t include the sash.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Mimi is an excellent teacher and her directions are always so clear and easy to follow.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? This went together with such ease and I think you get a really sophisticated look for not a lot of fuss. I also like that the pattern is so versatile. Sash, no shash, short, maxi, midi, prints, solids, endless options

Fabric Used: Poly Shantung

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: No alterations, I just chose to make it without the sash and belt loops.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Absolutely, I already have another cut out.

Conclusion: This is another winning tutorial from Mimi at What I love about this and the other tutorials I’ve made is that you can just change up the fabric, length and styling and build an entire wardrobe around these 5 or 6 easy basic pieces.
