Pattern Description:

I needed a skirt for work that would be totally professional while still being totally me. I am a bit of a free spirit and at the time I was working for a very conservative company. I just couldn't wear one more black dress with pumps! This skirt is the result of my wardrobe revolution and I hope you enjoy it! This skirt is based on basic skills and is done in one piece. All increasing is done by changing up to a larger hook, and the skirt starts at the hip and works down. Then you go back and work the upper hip and waist using decreases within the pattern instead of the edges so you get a more tailored look, its easier to sew together, and the decreases for the waist is where the sizing is done. I wear a contrasting underskirt or slip for modesty and to show off the classic shell stitches. This skirt can also be made shorter simply by decreasing the amount of rows in the solid color bands.

Gauge:

The guage isn't a fussy thing on this. Just use a relaxed stitch and enjoy the experience.
