Swingy Linen Skirt by Churchmouse Yarns

Elegant and easy care, our knitted linen skirt comes out softer—and swingier—every time you toss it in the washer and dryer. We've adapted our original "Flouncy Linen Skirt" to two silhouettes: a fluid mid-calf length with a longer flounce and a breezy knee length with a flippier flounce. Why not one of each?

Use your hip measurement to choose size. This skirt is designed to skim your hips with little or no ease. If your actual hip measurement is between sizes, go down a size—the fluidity of the linen fabric will accommodate the difference.
