I had some awkward shapes when I cut some pieces incorrectly from another project. What to do, what to do… how about lots of trapezoids to make a panel skirt!? Yeah! The fabric is stiff, I shouldn’t have tucked my shirt in, and it is too long but I have to keep my knees covered here. Once I am back in the USA I will be hemming this to above my knees and hopefully it will look better.
