... when it comes to many skirts. After all there are only so many ways to make a skirt. A lot of it depends on the fabric and the many details added onto the basic pattern.
Some of the same styles just keep coming back - or never even go away.
It's that hemline that keeps moving. So easy to change to suit oneself!
Instead of the waistband that's on nearly all vintage skirts (sitting up on the waistline) modern ones mostly either don't have one (and use waist facings) or the waistband sits down lower - I've seen this called a waistband but it resembles a small yoke.
If you want the vintage style waist using a modern pattern, it's so easy to pop a waistband on it.
Still...sometimes it's just fun to use vintage!
