Mini Skirts + Fishnets: McCalls 7906

What is the length/shortness required for a skirt to be considered a mini skirt?

So I bought this pattern to participate in the #sewyourview community. However, this was the pattern selected for March, I bought it around that month. However, McCalls backordered my pattern and by the time I received it, it was April. Then, I got caught up in other things and here we are in July.


This tells you how much of a procrastinator I am or how distracted I get with other things. Definitely, I am working on my time management skills and figuring out on way to increase my productivity.

I cut the shortest length of the skirt pattern which was skirt A. I wanted a mini skirt vibe for the summer, especially be on my “Clueless” vibe with this fabric i bought from Mood Fabrics.

I used red buttons for a pop of color and to bring out the red lines in the check/plaid print. I also made the pockets red too. It was definitely a step out of my comfort zone but I really enjoyed creating this skirt.

Im going to admit this skirt length was definitely short for me. I am 5’8 in height and my legs are longer than my torso. I wouldn’t wear this skirt without a pair of shorts, because I went out to eat with a friend and my butt definitely touched the restaurant seat (we sat outdoors too!)

All in all, very much enjoyed making this look . I love a garment that I switch up from stylishly casual to fashionably chic.

To my sewing lovers, would you make this skirt for this summer?

For my fashion lovers, is this a look or nah?
