The skirt is from a free download from Hot Patterns! I cut a bunch of length off the bottom and lined it in an inexpensive white poly knit from Joann's. I love to wear this skirt; it is so comfortable and swishy. It was very easy to sew. There is an elastic waistband. However, I thought it would be a flattering silhouette for my pear-shaped figure, but I am not so sure now. Maybe it's that I wear it to work but it doesn't project "power." Ha ha ha, I am such a milquetoast that I need my clothes to keep the ruse going. I still love the skirt.
