The Narrow Panel Skirt is suitable for the years 1910 to 1915, and is a prominent style for this period. Named for the narrow panels at the center front and center back, the sides are in one piece and fitted with a dart at the hip. For this skirt, the seams are lapped seams, topstitched 3/4" from the edge, releasing into kick pleats at both the front and the back. The closure is in the left side front seam, and can be closed with buttons, snaps, or hooks/eyes. The waistline is slightly raised, with an 2" wide internal belt. The skirt hangs from the top edge of the belt, fitting loosely over the natural waist.
There are many variations that can be adopted for this skirt. It can be made with an asymmetrical look by only putting buttons on the left side for the closure, or it can be made symmetrical by placing buttons on both front seams. The closure can be completely hidden, if desired. It can be worn with a separate blouse, or it can be attached to a dress top, of matching fabric.
