One of the themes for the Spring 2013 of Stitch is Simple Skirts. I worked in the corporate world of design for over 20 years designing women's clothing for Eddie Bauer, Union Bay and Nordstrom.
I had forgotten how much I love designing clothes!! The downtown skirt is a fun and easy project. It is made from knit fabric and has a flattering fold over waistband and four panels. If you haven't made clothing before, I highly recommend starting with an easy project like this. It would be great in a solid or print and I think it is super flattering in the bias cut stripe!!!
The uptown skirt uses the basic pattern but incorporates a fun knot and gathered detail at the waist.
I will be wearing my "Uptown" with a tank top and sandals this summer. I've already worn the "Downtown" with tights and boots!!!
