I found the piece of fabric that became this skirt at a thrift shop, and it called to me to become some flouncy and pretty. I originally planned on making Prudence’s Obi Apron, but quickly switched to improvising this piece.
The waistline is one extremely long piece, which ties around twice, and has a slit on one end to sit nicely. There are no zippers; its construction is similar to kilt, with a panel that snaps into the inside that overlaps the gather.
I realized while shooting this skirt that it would work equally well as a loose-fitting top, probably with a pair of casual leggings — the waist can be cinched tight at the waist, or loose in the bust, depending on which look you’re after.
