PATTERN DETAILS

This A-line skirt was inspired by Marvel Crosson, a pioneering aviator with a fabulous and flirty sense of style. Marvel was the first woman to receive a pilot's license in (the then Territory of) Alaska, and was a contestant in the 1929 Women's Air Derby (also known as the "Powder Puff Derby"), the first U.S. air race for women. Sadly, Marvel died young as a result of a crash on the second day of the Derby. This skirt is a great project for a crocheter who hasn't made garments before, but the join keeps things interesting for a more advanced crocheter. Start by crocheting two panels flat, join with a decorative stitch, and then finish with a covered elastic waist band crocheted in the round. (This skirt is unlined. I recommend slip shorts rather than a half slip if you prefer a liner.) This pattern is available for FREE on my blog by following the link below. The free version is supported by advertising on my website. The downloadable pdf for sale on Craftsy includes includes the full pattern in one printable file without advertisements. This PDF is available to US buyers only due to EU VAT MOSS. I can set up an Etsy listing for you if you live outside of the US. Thank you for your understanding.
