This skirt was easy and enjoyable to make and it didn’t take long time to make it. The body of the skirt was made in the rectangle and sides were closed after the body part was done. The band part was continued in the round.. Increases and decreases were done equally in the body part so the skirt went straight up and some decreases were done on the band part.
