simple black skirt to wear over a bathing suit. This is modeled after one I bought in a store, so it is sized small with 16 inches at waist (1 inch allowed for seams); 22 inches at bottom; 13 inches long. The next one I make will have a bit more give in measurements as I did not consider that the store bought one had spandex in it.
Polyester Fabric, thread, feather stitch to reinforce seams, number 9 needle for knit fabric
Thanks to the clerk at fabric store to advise on needle!
