I was happy with the first knit skirt I drafted, but for the second one I added a little more easy. Both skirts are fully lined, so they hang nicely without clinging. Making the purple skirt, which is actually fine stripes of periwinkle and burgundy, I rotated the grain lines. While the top layer is on grain, the base layer is sewn on the cross grain, the middle layer is a 3"band sewn to the base layer. I have left the hem as a raw cut and I'm debating whether to make it a narrow rolled hem.

It looks very comfy, I especially like the purple ones interesting finish. Would the hems look very different after washing? Otherwise my choice would be to just leave them ;-) Well done!
