Thank you. It's a top down pattern, so it's easy to try on and see if it's a good lengh before moving on to the lace. My stockinette is approx. 20 inches.

Nice job!! Thanks for the close up pictures. The lace is really attractive when you can see the pattern closer. The lace flounce is really nice on the skirt.

I've always been worried about knitting skirt...not sure I could pull it off but this one is very cute and I love how you made it longer. Great job
