Rachel is a slightly flared double crochet skirt with lace ruffles on the bottom. You choose how many rows of lace you want at the bottom of your skirt! Instructions are given for 7 different lace patterns, which can be place in any order, use several different laces, switch off between two, or even just make a few rows of the same one, it is all up to you! Due to the fact that you choose how many ruffles to make, the smaller child sizes can be almost entirely covered in ruffles if that is what you want, and the adult sizes can have the ruffles just at the bottom, so the hips and thighs are not made larger by ruffles. Length is also left up to the creator, so this skirt can be short or long. It has a slight flair, so movement is not an issue as it gets longer. There are many process pictures included to help with pattern clarity.
