Description
Here's a knitted skirt that's easy to make - and wear. Triangular inserts in different widths discourage hip hugging and allow you to take the stairs two at a time. The skirt is knitted from the top down, and the wedge-shaped gores are sewn in place at the end. Seams are left exposed for a simple decorative flourish.
