Womens Tank to Little Girl Maxi

Maxi's are all the rage this season.  I wanted one for my little miss but they are hard to find.  I was shopping at a local mall and found an adorable tank for women.  I am not much of a tank top wearer but it is adorable for my Little Miss. Here is what I started with.... A lacey tank from Down East.

I cut off the bottom of the tank just below the arm pit.  Leaving the most length possible.

Stitch a basting stitch around the top of the skirt.  You may need to gather the skirt a bit  before sewing on the waist band.

For the waistband I had a piece of knit that was a perfect match . I measured my Little Missy's waist and subtracted 1 inch. Knit is really stretchy.  I cut my fabric 19 by 6. Fold your waistband in half lengthwise and right sides together. Short ends together.  Stitch. You should have a circle for a waistband. 

Fold the band in half to make it 3 x 18 round. Pin the band to your skirt. Giving the skirt and even gather if your must gather. Stitch around with a knit stitch. securing the waistband to the skirt.
Here is how my skirt turned out.

I think it turned out so cute.  She loves it! I think it makes her look so grown up.  Fun and easy for the summer.  Great for the beach, church or a day of shopping. Head out and find a tank for your Little Miss.
