From one basic A-line skirt pattern you can make two different skirts with distinctive personalities! The Uptown Skirt is the more sophisticated of the two, with a glamorous draped knot detail at the front. The Downtown Skirt (shown) is the fun, hip version. Cut on the bias, any stripe will work well for this pattern. Both knit skirts have a flattering A-line shape, knee grazing length, and a double-layer, foldover waistband.
