The last flashback post was about a skirt that I knitted for Emma a good ten years ago. Let’s continue with that theme by looking at another skirt, also for Emma.
This was featured in the post “How to end your knitting year with a bang!“, published in January 2016. I had a lot of fun knitting this skirt, which incorporates a breezy, flirty ruffle, an even flirtier corseting feature which ties up through the back with a ribbon, and great shaping details. In this post, I talked about making this with a more affordable yarn, and also how I got a bit of lift into the ruffle. Looking at this post now, I am surprised at how green everything looked in the middle of January! I’m not surprised at how good the skirt looks, as it’s a great pattern and Emma is a great model.
I hope that you are all well and managing to keep it together. Stay safe!
