Taupe wool twill skirt designed by Arthur McGee. The skirt is made from two (2) pieces of fabric cut in the same asymmetric shape and then sewn together, with the pieces wrapping around the body and creating a full circle flair skirt. The skirt has a short waistband and falls just below the knee. It closes at the center back waist with a zipper and one (1) hook into a thread loop. The skirt is not lined and there are no labels.
