A version of the Jenny Skirt. I use some stretch linen and french seams so no lining. I love this pattern, needed to make a few adjustments but came together very quickly. I made a size 38 but took the skirt in at least 2 sizes (maybe because it was stretch fabric) and the band in at an angle at the top.
I could wear it all the time! The suspenders seem to slip off sometimes though, next time I will cross them at the back as Gertie did. I already have at least 3 more Jenny Skirts planned!
Stretch linen (can anyone tell me how to press it well? It always seems to look a little scrunched!)
