The Melinda Midi is a simple take on a classic look. This midi skirt has a full silhouette with a gathered elastic waist and large front slash pockets. View A is fully lined with a triple-tunneled waistband made by sewing multiple tunnels with the main and lining pieces. This triple line of elastic is comfortable and makes for easy fitting. View B is unlined and features a separate waistband piece with 2” elastic. Both views have large front pockets to carry all your things (it’s plenty big for a phone!) and an elegant midi length.
