This rather short skirt is made up of 2 overlaid elements, assembled on a wide belt with V-shaped on the back and on the front. For a very sober version, use the skirt below only: flared, simple and symmetrical. For a more romantic garment, add the top skirt: gathered and asymmetrical. The closure is on the left side with an invisible zip and a fastner.
