I needed a simple skirt for swing dancing. To get a little bit of a 30’s look I sewed a halfcircle skirt and used a simple black fabric. For a special detail I drafted with a button border, that runs down the hole lenght of the skirt o one sideseam. I worked the skirt with a green lining, green biastape at the hem and green cotton with white flowers inside of the waistband.
