A friend has presented me with a packet of fabric and asked me to make this for her. I can't bear anything in my waist - not a skirt, pants, belt, nothing. But she looks gorgeous in waisty things and I have no doubt that she is going to look gorgeous in this.

I love simple skirts like this! They are cute and feminine, but still comfortable.
