This look was made for fall, perfect for a breezy October day at a street festival. My aim was a line of pencil skirts, but with a twist in the sides. This makes for a more comfortable wear and much more visual interest than usual.
The semicircular cutouts this time were made of a spandex rayon blend, which is almost perfect swimsuit material. Put this with a stiff bottom weight cotton twill for the main fabric, and you have two very distinct drapes.
