Wrap-around Skirt

(Skirt: cotton with metal hardware, 2010)
The skirt has multiple panels sewn together then gathered. The adjustable wide band at the waist (like a weightlifter's belt) feels wonderful. It is strengthening! The pattern was drafted with a large hem allowance. Seeing the photograph it is evident that shortening the skirt would be better given the fullness of the design (and my height)!  Back to the machine.
