Knowing how to make the most of your handwoven fabric in a garment can be tricky. This skirt pieces simple strips of fabric with knitting in a way that's both clever and flattering.

 

Notes: the single pattern includes notes for the modified 1 skein maiden hair version, & hemstitching instructions.
