Ever on the search for The Perfect Skirt, I ran across this tutorial today and promptly turned out FOUR skirts, with fabric and t-shirts I already had on hand. All cut on the bias for stretch and drape, falling about knee-length. Three in cotton and one in a fake suede; once I got the pattern drafted up each skirt only took about ten minutes to sew with my serger (would take slightly longer without a serger). I think The Girl would like these as well.
