Description

Axel by Megan Nielsen is a fitted knit skirt that sits at the natural waistline and has three variations. Version 1 is a midi-length with a handkerchief hem, Version 2 is knee length with hip sashes that tie in front, and Version 3 is also midi-length with a slit that can be worn in the front or back. If you're looking for comfort masquerading as dressy this is the pattern for you. Knit skirts epitomize comfort while still looking glamorous.

Make Version 2 in a textured knit and wear it with a cropped tank-top and sneakers for a sporty look. Version 1, sewn up in a knit fabric with a little drape, paired with wedges and a casual top make for breezy casual outfit perfect for any occasion.
