Megan Nielsen's lovely pattern Axel Skirt has been made. A skirt style that at first gave me pause, but absolutely love and adore now that it is all finished and time to be worn!

website here. There are three versions of this cute skirt, and I chose the one on the very far left, Version 2. What I found most interesting about this pattern, is that it's built on negative ease and the waistband has nary a piece of elastic nor zipper. It's all about the knit fabric holding everything up and all together. I had a piece of Hobby Lobby knit originally planned as a drapey top, but thought it'd make a great Axel skirt. And I think it did. Wanting to stay true to the pattern, I made it as instructed, with the exception that I had to narrow the side seams to 1/4" from hip down as I felt it was too tight. Then afraid my drapey spandexy knit might be too clingy and curve-showing, I lined mine with a poly interlock purchased from my local Wal-Mart. I cut a Small.
Happy Sewing Everyone! :)
