Simple Skirts - No Pattern Required

I made 2 really simple skirts. 

The first one is a knit maxi. I cut 2 rectangles to total a little bigger than my hip measurement & long enough to hem and add an elastic waist casing.  Next time, I will make it one piece with the seam up the back & leave a walking slit.  I've worn this to work & it is super comfortable, and I love the floral print.




Next up is a skirt I made from a cotton woven remnant I found in my stash.  Same method as the first except I made it a little bigger since it's a woven & has no stretch.  And since it wasn't quite long enough, I added a piece of gathered eyelet to the hemline, also found in my stash. Yellow is one of my favorite colors & I love the old-fashioned look of the fabric combined with the eyelet.  I haven't worn this yet, but I'm sure it'll be cool for these hot days we've been having.
