Cordelia skirt is a long, slim skirt that is worked top down, which makes the length easy to adjust to your desire. The skirt has a waistband, where an elastic is inserted, so that the waist circumference can be adjusted, too. You work a stripe pattern throughout the complete skirt and increases along the sides. Pictured here is the skirt with the Cordelia top, which can be purchased as a separate instruction.
Cordelia is an old Latin name and “cor” means “heart”. Cordelia was also used in the Celtic language around 1800 and meant something like “heart of the sea” or “daughter of the sea”. As the pictured version has a certain maritime flair, it was a good fit, but it looks equally good with other colours and compositions.
Choose a size that is close to your hip circumference. Take measurements around your hip.
