Short Description: A flattering, vintage style A-line skirt in six sizes (S/M/L and 1 to 3X), knit in herringbone twill, which is accented at the princess seams by opposing cable panels. Narrow cables define and stabilize the side seams as well. The skirt is worked top-down in the round with a knit-in casing for the elasticized waist, then flares gently to the hem with increases placed along the side seams and cable panels. The length is easily adjusted for a perfect fit. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
