Nori Skirt

Worked in one piece from waist to hem, this front-buttoning, A-line skirt has the appearance of a paneled skirt, thanks to post stitches. Inspired by the work of the mid-twentieth-century American designer Claire McCardell, this skirt incorporates the essence of her work: simplicity, clean lines, and functional decoration.
