I tried on a great ready-to-wear knit skirt last weekend. It was too large, but so simple that I think there must be a pattern for it, or something close.

It was in a moderately heavy knit fabric, had princess seams in front and back (which made for a close, shapely fit) and a simple, non-bulky waist finish. It also had a back zipper.

Does a similar pattern come to mind for anyone? I'm prepared to draft it myself if I have to, but thought I'd save time by asking the experts. :)

Thanks!

How about Vogue 8323? Maybe KS3843?

Thanks for the response! But this was a skirt, not a top :)

Appreciate it!
