This skirt is drafted based on an actual garment as seen in a fashion book of the 1880’s. The front apron is a long swag, pulled up high onto the hips in large pleats. The back is in waterfall style (falls down the back in long, straight pleats) with the tail ends hanging in three points. The closure is in the left side. The apron is cut on the cross grain.
This skirt is ideal for lengthwise stripes, which would then go across on the front, and downward in the back. Any fabric will be suitable, however.
