    Kensington knit skirt
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 06/10/2020
    I really love this pattern in many ways...great instructions, great fit, and easy to whip up a new skirt in a short amount of time. I made my first skirt out of a navy knit for a basic go- with- everything skirt. Super comfortable and quick. I'll be making several of these in the future.

    I love Liesl patterns but this knit skirt pattern is amazing. I made it with a stripe ponte remnant and a solid ponte waistband. It is comfortable to take on and off and fits like a dream. There will be more and I know it will become my go to knit skirt pattern.
