Here we are with a simple gathered skirt in a leaf print linen fabric, inseam pockets and elastic at the back waist for pull-on action. It was made in between back to back business trips and packed in my suitcase for the final one. The white blouse I’m wearing with the skirt is a variation on my “Hip to Be Square” top made with wrap around waist ties.
