New York, New Yo...
This is the first skirt I’ve ever made, and I think it came out pretty well. It’s a traditional A-Line skirt. The print is black Chinese symbols over an olive background, with a black band at the top which can be folded over or left wide.
(The reason the serger stitches are showing in the close up pictures are just because I haven’t ironed it yet, but the skirt is hemmed.)
The Lorelai Skirt is named after Lorelai Gilmore, the mother on the TV show ‘Gilmore Girls’. (Originally on the WB; now you can catch re-runs on ABC family)
The black band is a simple knit, and the print is a woven.
