The Folly skirt is high-waisted, with a sewn-in elastic waistband to hold up this midi length skirt securely. It flares gently to the hips, but delivers generous ease in all sizes, and then flares dramatically to the below-the-knee hem. Towards the end, the rounds are lengthy but this project doesn’t drag, thanks to the ever-shifting colours and symmetrical charts.

Choosing a Size: Select a size that is approx. 2” less than your natural waist, sizing down if you are between sizes. You can finesse the fit by cutting the elastic waistband to fit up to 2” smaller or larger than the knitted opening. Knitting is stretchy, and some negative ease is required for this garment to fit. Sample shown in Size 3, with 28” elastic waistband.

Yardage requirements vary widely across sizes, please see the chart in the images for details.
