This is the easiest, cutest, cheapest maxi skirt you could ever make. In my opinion. I did some research and couldn't find one as simple, or as cute as this. I could have made it in a half hour had I not researched and made my own pattern.
All you need is:2-2 1/2 yards of stretchy fabric. (depending on your height)
I would make sure you get something that is not see-through.
+ A sewing machine, and thread. That's it! Not even any elastic.
This.skirt.is.the.best. Did I mention it is cheap to make? ;)

Start by folding it in half hot dog style. You want the stretch to be going horizontally.

Next, we're going to work on your waist band. I love this band because you can fold it up and have a high waist skirt, or fold it down and have it be low..or in between! Use that same number you used to measure your waist for that piece of fabric you cut at the beginning. Fold it in half and sew the same stitch used earlier.
