This feminine and flirty skirt is knit in a tighter gauge than the yarn ordinarily calls for, which helps bring stability to the knitted fabric. The tightly knitted cotton yarn combats sag, and the wool yarn gives the skirt elasticity.

It is worn equally well on smaller and plus size bodies and comes in 8 sizes, the model is wearing a size 45.5.
