Description

Really easy and fun skirt with optional lining and a knit waistband. My lining (not pictured) is white with polka dots :) I used a heavy knit for the top layer which resulted in a skirt that looks like it is lined with tulle! So next time I’ll use something more lightweight.

    I dont know why, but I have never thought to use a thick knit to make a waistband for a simple gathered skirt. Thanks for the inspiration!
