Prelude Houndstooth Skirt by Dora  Ohrenstein

Sleek, chic and classic, this skirt uses spike stitches to simulate a houndstooth pattern.

Prelude is stitched in one piece, with darts at the hip. The sexy 40s-style detailing of the center-back seam is accentuated with small, pretty buttons.

These design details also enhance fit to show off your gorgeous curves. It sits just above the hip bones, and is shaped perfectly at the hips and tushie. The yarn amounts are for an 18" (46 cm) skirt, but you can adjust the length to your liking.
