Shown with the Sarah Shirt #A181, both in charcoal Cotton Lycra Jersey - C1 (a 1 star fabric *). Alternate photo below shows the Flirty Skirt made up in a Stretch Gabardine Suiting** - P4.8. It's a very versatile style, works well with pretty much any fabric.
If you are choosing a non-stretch fabric, you may want to double check the hip measurement, you might want to go up a size. If that's the case, we can keep the smaller elastic waistband, while giving the extra fabric of a larger size. Just note that request in the *special requests section of the shopping cart.
