This is an A-line skirt pattern with different length options and with instructions on how to make the chevron look with striped fabric. Of course you can make it with any fabric and she just wrote up instructions on making a hi-low variation. I can't wait until it's released and I can link up to the pattern. Oh, and it has a yoga waistband, so I wear it on my hips. Another tester described these skirts as glamorous sweatpants... um I'll take it ;)
I'm using her yoga waistband tutorial and altering another maxi skirt I have that has a waistband that I just can't stand. It's a black skirt so I just picked up a half yard of black knit to make the waistband.
I don't know if you can tell... but look closely and you can see that I added a lining. So glad I did because my fabric was lightweight/thin/see through and I'm just not into that look. I didn't want to have to worry about flashing my goods at the world so in went the lining. I just cut a second skirt out of white jersey and at a shorter length and sewed all the pieces together at the side seems. Also, I made the size Large, maxi & tall length. I love my maxi's extra long... floor grazing long... no high water maxi's for me please. Oh and I should mention I'm 5'8'' and this is how it looks on me.
I definitely see a solid coral version in my future.
