A straight skirt is an umbrella term for any skirt that doesn’t flare.  This includes pencil skirts, slightly gathered skirts and fitted pleated skirts.

A straight skirt in its simplest form is a rectangle of fabric, either long or short, with an elastic waistband. This is the easiest type of skirt to sew and it makes an ideal beginner’s sewing project.586a11d383c12a55477afffc62a657b3.jpg
