|McCalls 6654 in a quilted knit|
The pattern description for McCalls 6654 is "misses skirts in 7 lengths: semi-fitted or loose-fitting skirts have elasticized waistband and narrow hem".
This skirt doesn't look like those elastic waist skirts that result from a home economics or childrens' beginning sewing class. It looks terrific. The waistband is sewn on and then elasticized. I think that helps eliminate the dreaded bubble tummy, bubble behind look.
I made mine from a quilted knit that's been in my stash for a long time. I think I got it at Hancock's. I've seen a few similar knits online at Stylemaker Fabrics. It's super easy to work with and looks terrific in this style. I think a few more of these knit skirts are in my future. Easy to make, easy to launder, and doesn't wrinkle after sitting at a desk all day!
