Description

For this skirt I used a simple A-line pattern, zipper on the back. It is more tall than other
skirts I sewed, because the facbric was a left over rom a pillow project. Linen included (but only a short one).

I wanted to try out my new overlock, so no hems are visible just overlocked edges.
The fabric is sold by KOKKA (Echino), which is a mixture of linen and cotton and is very comfortable.

Originally I wanted to add a short piece of fur at the bottom, but still have not found the right one.
