Pattern Design: In this class students will make an elastic waist skirt with plenty of twirl.  Because EVERYTHING is better with pockets, we'll be adding top stitched feature pockets.  The skirt is a simple design with an elastic waist and soft folds.  

Photographed Sample: Made in a medium weight woven cotton with a small percentage of stretch.

Styling Ideas & Notes On Supplies: This pattern is not suitable for knit fabrics. This pattern does not include a lining, take this into consideration when choosing your fabrics and avoid scratchy/itchy material. For directional prints or large prints you should purchase extra fabric. For best results - pre-wash your fabric to reduce shrinkage. You could choose a contrasting fabric for the feature pockets.
