This graphic skirt will suit a wide variety of figures and clothing styles. Knit sideways in narrow stripes, short-row shaping creates the a-line silhouette as well as striking dashes of the main color. The crocheted hem and enclosed elastic waistband make this skirt reversible, with a more subtle striped look on the purl side of the fabric.
