Wanting to capitalize on the easy design principles of EZ’s Pi Shawl, I considered a flamenco-style skirt, straight to just above the knee, with a swirling, circular lace flounce below. Once you make one for yourself, you too will want to give it a spin!

Finished Sizes
All sizes assume 6” distance between the natural waist and full hip. Additional flare continues beyond the full hip to mid thigh, then continues straight. The full flare measurement is 3” more than the waist measurements stated below. Length can be easily adjusted, but yardage quantities assume a total length from waist, including
flounce, of 30”.
