I used the directions in Sew What Skirts (the book) to draft a half-circle skirt pattern, and a straight waist band. I would have made a full circle, I love the swish so much! But, this is vintage fabric, and I only had enough for a half circle.
The hem is finished with fold-over elastic, because I didn’t leave quite enough for a hem! Lapped zip closure on the side.
vintage, late 1960s linen.
The lines of Greek architecture inspire this neutral and pastel collection.
