Description

On days when it's too hot for pants, but style and structure are still a must, the Alder Skirt by Imagine Gnats is where it's at. The single front pleat adds a smack of visual interest while the generous pockets are entirely functional. No zippers on this puppy make it a great skirt for a beginner sewist or a quick and easy sew for a sewing veteran. Tuck a fitted tee into the skirt for a casual summertime look. Wear it with tights and a leather jacket for a chilly winter day.
