Anthropologizing GAP: Patagonian Maxi Skirt

Sunday, June 3, 2012

Blouse--Marshall's
Skirt--GAP Outlet
Wristlet--Simply Vera Vera Wang
Wedges--Nine West
Watch--AE
Belt--Anthropologie

I rarely obsess over any item of clothing, but to say I obsessed over Anthropologie's Patagonian skirt from last summer is an understatement. I have hounded this skirt on eBay approximately 2, 500 times this year, but nothing. Zilch. Nada. Zero. It must be the best, most comfortable skirt ever 'cuz no one is selling it. When I spotted this dress at the Gap Outlet, I finally saw my chance to own a version of this skirt...which to put it bluntly, is wildly awesome. HA. 
Ok. I know maxi skirts are easy to find in the summer, but generally the best prints come in the form of dresses. Here's the tutorial in case you lovely dahlings want to refashion a similar dress into a comfy skirt. 

Pattern recommendation to make your own (you'll have to lengthen): Butterick 5190

  2. Nice! Potentially a much better use of the fabric(But as you know, I have a thing for stripey maxi skirts at the moment!). ;)

  6. It looks great! Jcrew has a near identical copy of the patagonian skirt for sale online in the factory outlet, it even has the fun offset striped waistband. I recently picked it up with an extra 30% off sale coupon and have been loving it (I tried the anthro version and it was too long and tight for me).

    1. Way cool to know. Wish I lived closer to a J.Crew outlet...or maybe it's best that I don't! =)

  10. This is a great DIY. I have been in search of a striped maxi and had not considered making my own. If only I had a sewing talent!
