Skort: cross between a skirt and shorts. Finished this up Saturday & threw it into the wash. It had been in my UFO pile for a year, and deserved to be freshened up a bit! I usually knot the elastic until the garment has been washed and worn at least once. It’s the best way to test and make certain the elastic doesn’t shrink!
