CASUAL SKIRT

This skirt is the best.  Made from a commercial pattern in a quilting cotton calico, it is comfortable all the time.  The back has a partial drawstring waist which makes it perform like an elastic waist while the architecture looks much more complicated than it is –  somewhat designed and quirky.  The extra fullness in the back makes walking comfortable, while the front view appears much like a fitted skirt.  I changed my skirt from the pattern by sewing it to ride lower on my hips and extended the hem to ballerina length.  One of the best skirts I have for summer,  I do not think it would hang as well or be as flattering made from a heavier or stiffer fall or winter fabric.
