Customer Reviews

Fun to work on, great to wear Review by Joyce Peterson

I made this in a Louet linen because I was worried about bulk. This is that rare knitted skirt that doesn't make your butt magically expand--truly graceful and flattering. I wear mine with leggings so the see-through doesn't matter.
