From Allie Olson:

The Weaver Skirt is a lined, fitted knit skirt with a hidden elastic waistband. View A is midi length, falling just above the ankle, and features double side slits to the low hip. View A offers a full lining or a hidden partial lining that smooths over the hips and falls just above the side slits. View B is a fully lined mini length skirt with a simple hem.

Recommended Fabrics: 

  • Four-way stretch knit fabrics with at least 40% cross grain stretch. View A should be sewn in fabrics with lots of drape. Bamboo, rayon, and modal blend knits are recommended for both the self fabric and the lining. Stretchy sweater knits can be used as the self fabric to create a cozy skirt. If sewing View A with a full lining, use a coordinating lining fabric, as it may peek out at the side slit and hem. View B can be sewn in more stable knit fabrics like ponte, but again should be combined with a lightweight knit for the lining. Regardless of fabric selection, the self and lining fabric should have comparable stretch percentages in both directions.

Sizing: 00-32

The Weaver Skirt is drafted for a height of 5’6” (168 cm). This design is fitted through the waist, with negative ease through the full hip. Choose a size based on your waist measurement and grade between sizes as necessary.
