I did some sewing and am really loving this VERY comfortable skirt. I found the material at Hancock's. These pictures don't show it very well but there are several inverted box pleats, front and back. I started this with a pattern, but then didn't like how it was going, so, I just did it my own way. I love it when something turns out, don't you?! The wind was blowing so I'm trying to hold down the skirt- it really has an even hem line!
