Light and delicate, this simple skirt is the perfect ‘cover up’ when wearing leggings or just as is. The beautiful drape of the lace makes this a ‘self-shaping’ garment so the pattern is dead easy to adjust in both length and width. Quick and easy to knit up, you’ll soon have a few in your wardrobe to choose from!
