The column skirt is a slimming silhouette that looks great on everyone! Consider wearing this skirt instead of shorts or pants - you'll be pleasantly surprised how versatile and comfortable it is for all seasons! You can make it short or maxi length, or use the templates for a high/low shaped hem style. The Column Skirt features a comfortable 1.5" yoga-style elastic waistband that will fit perfectly. It is smooth at the waist, with no darts or gathering, and falls straight to the knees or ankle. It looks great made in the beautiful thin ITY knits, sweater knits, ponte, border prints - just about any knit fabric you can imagine! Add an optional lightweight tricot or knit lining that will help the skirt look smooth - even over your fluff and scallops!
