Yes it’s a skirt. A black skirt. A black pencil skirt.
Yawn. But …
The waist band is made of elastic! Hello contours!
I made this skirt to accompany my fabulous new cardigans, but wanted a skirt that truly emphasised the feminine shape and so my discovery and love affair with elastic began! A once elastic-phobe, I have embraced the spring that is elastic. It’s so simple, but by golly it gives good shape.
