A gorgeous Skirt with an optional but super-cool central patchwork panel, this fabulously skinny-fying statement piece is designed for
firm skirt-weight fabrics like heavy crepe, washed linen, heavy sueded silk, soft twill and even lightweight denims or heavy cottons.
Fitted Skirt has an optional lining and a classic pencil silhouette with a shaped waist panel that sits at the natural waist, plus side panels to
add shapely definition. Skirt back features an invisible zipper closure, a shaped center back seam plus a lined godet insert at the hem for
ease of movement.
You could-of course-choose a simple, solid-colored fabric center front panel...but why not use the patchwork instructions we’ve included to create a fabulous patchwork panel...so fashion-forward!
This gorgeous skirt will be chic worn under a sharp jacket and simple tank, but think about pairing it with a huge slouchy sweater and
some killer knee-high boots, or a sleekly fitted knit shell-and-drapey-cardigan twinset for an outfit with maximum fashion impact.
