A swingy circle skirt I made. Elastic waistband, over-locked edges. A little hard to hem because of it’s circular nature, so overlock was the best bet. Very very pretty and flattering. It can be worn as a strapless top with a belt underneath the bust or as shown with a tank top. It’s both dressy as well as functional and wearable as a day skirt too.
