Notes This is a very close fitting skirt, only 2cm of ease. I needed to add an additional 1.5cm to the fronts, to give a looser fit, as the skirt was originally only suitable for standing up straight. I would definitely advise a fabric with some widthways stretch for this style.

The skirt is shorter than the diagram suggested, only knee length, so I finished the hem with a facing to give a little extra length.

I really like the waist design on this skirt, the waist is faced and has large belt loops, this should be comfortable and versatile.

Very pleased with the finished skirt :)

Top is 4017, which I thought would go well with the skirt because the bodice darts were already aligned with the skirt waist darts. I am very pleased with this combination.

    Really well done, Maria! The fit is perfect! (I find Lekala patterns tend to be designed to be a bit short, at least shorter than I like my garments, and I'm only 5'4" (162.5cm).)
