"This easy-to-make skirt pattern comes from Quick & Easy Summer Wardrobe Patterns 1948, Woman & Beauty, Self Draft, published in July 1948. You can make this pretty summer skirt using a free pattern published in July 1948 in about 2-3 hours. I made three alterations to the pattern: used elastic band instead of making fabric belt, so I don’t have to use zipper shortened the length of the skirt from 36 inches to 20 inches widened the skirt at a waste by 10 inches total (so I can wear it by pulling through my head)"

NotesBecause the skirt has several panels, you can potentially use this pattern for scraps busting. This is the second skirt I made with this pattern, for the first one I used long chiffon summer scarf :) it was enough to make 5 panels.
