yoga pants maxi skirt

First and foremost, I know it's been a while. Again. I think it's time I move out of denial. That's the first step, right?? I've got quite a Thanksgiving feast on my proverbial plate right now and sometimes weeks go by and I have no clue what my name is or what I had for breakfast (did I remember to eat breakfast???). Life is busy. We all know that. I'm not giving up on my blog. I'm still doing crafty stuff when I can/need a creative break! I still try and keep up with all the goings on in the blogging world, you just may not hear from me 3-5 times a week for now. 
Whew. Anyway, did anyone else swoon over this maxi skirt on pinterest last week?? I did. Majorly. I ended up making a quick and last minute trip to Houston on Sunday and my mom and I whipped this baby out in one evening! I consider myself a sewing infant (I'd go as far as to say fetus but that creates a gross mental image. Sorry!). That's a testament to how easy this sewing project is! I am loving my yoga pants maxi skirt and plan to scoop up any knit fabrics I see & love to make more in the future. 
It's so long and soft. I could wear it to bed. If you are planning on making one, I have one suggestion. Make the waist smaller than you actual waste. The fabric is stretchy, people! I made the waste my exact waste line to start, finished the whole thing (almost), tried it on and it was seriously XL. I didn't scrap it, but I had to do a lot of it over again. Just a tip. Also, I didn't use elastic thread and it turned out just fine with the zig-zag stitch. This was a last minute rushed project, remember?
My favorite part is the yoga pants waistband :)
I know I've been saying this for a long time, but I do have some fun stuff to blog about and I will try and post again soon :)

I'm searching the blogosphere for tailgating recipes and fun stuff!!! Love. football. season.
