I found this random stretch knit fabric in one of my fabric bins. I have no idea where it came from – I certainly don’t remember buying it. I wanted to make a casual but cute skirt to wear to an anime convetion last year, so I threw this skirt together. Made without a pattern, this is a simple A-line style skirt with boxpleats to trim the hem. Hoorah for boxpleats! Since it’s stretchy, no zips or elastics were needed.
