I have to admit that I have been enjoying this skirt already this summer. It is so soft and comfortable. I hope next year to have a couple of these made up! I used Simplicity pattern 4237 as a guide and then modified it just a bit. Using view A (the full length skirt), I took out the seam down the middle of the skirt and make the front panel one piece. Did the same thing to the back. I also cut it much longer as I am on the taller side and hate it when skirts end at mid calf! Used a pumpkin color knit fabric that was purchased at our local fabric store. It is a nice light weight knit with a great drape.
In the fall/winter I really don't wear skirts, but this one may have to be made again for fall at least. It has possibilities!
