Oceanic Skirt | In designing the Oceanic Skirt I wanted to create something to balance the lower body. I gave the skirt a simple A line, and added ribbing that narrows toward the top. These features combine to give the illusion of a smaller waist and balance the lower body. A lace border with a pattern of gentle waves is knit onto the live stitches at the end, drawing attention to one of the top heavy body type's best features, her legs.!
