Featured in the issue is the Seashell Skirt, a beautiful graphic knee length skirt designed by Kristen Omdahl out of Organik in highlands. The fluted hem of the skirt is created through the pairing of garter, slipped stitches and stockinette, and the end result has both beautiful drape and visual interest.
