The Timeless Classic Skirt

Audrey Hepburn, Judy Garland, Lauren Bacall,  Katherine Hepburn, Lucille Ball---

What do these women have in common aside from being among the most classic actresses of all time?

They all wore skirts with the timeless, classic cut of this one. 

Seriously, this look will ALWAYS be in style. It's modest yet flattering, flowy yet feminine. Once it's in your closet, it won't ever leave. 

For this skirt, I used an excellent tutorial by Altered Cloth, which can be found here.
The directions for measuring, cutting, pinning and sewing are all there with clear illustrations.

I used a synthetic knit fabric for this one. It was actually with the athletic/swim fabric at the store. It feels so light and soft. Jersey knit would also work well. It MUST be a fabric that stretches quite a bit, since you don't use any elastic in the waist--just the fabric.
