How to Sew A Maxi Skirt With A Split Tutorial

Hey there!

Maxi skirts and circle skirts are a super popular style of skirt. And adding a front leg split to them definitely takes the style factor up a notch!

I’ve got two options to share with you today on creating the skirt (or skirts!) you want to add to your closet!

Option 1: Circle Skirt with Split Pattern (Plus Pockets!)

If you’re looking for a flowy and twirly skirt with a split, my Gia circle skirt with split sewing pattern is a great option for you! This circle skirt sewing pattern has an adjustable left leg front split and side pockets in this easy-to-sew pattern!

Option 2: DIY Gathered Maxi Skirt with Split Tutorial

If you’d like a more straight-lined silhouette in a longer skirt, I have another tutorial for you to show you how to sew a gathered maxi skirt from your own measurements – no pattern needed.

I’ve made this tutorial super easy in that you do not need a sewing pattern to sew this maxi skirt. You just need a few measurements of your own body that I show you in this video below.

I made this DIY maxi skirt from easy measurements and added a sexy high split to spice it up for date night. I thought the polka dots in plain colors like navy and white needed a little spice to it.

My fabric is from a private supplier for my business. It is a polyester fabric. So, you can use any opaque non-stretch fabric you want for this.  Make it fun, use a vibrant print for the spring/summer!

I styled it with a pink tee and knotted it in the back. These shoes are repeats and one of my favorite pairs of shoes. My accessories are from RocksBox.

In this tutorial, I show you how to sew this maxi skirt, start to finish. No pattern needed! And, I show you an easy gathering method that I use all of the time!

Get started on this easy project below!

If you wanted to make this skirt into a sexy dress, I’ve got a tutorial for that, too!
