Handkerchief Skirt: a women's skirt comprising a large square of material with a circle cut in the middle, the waistband being attached to the hole so that the skirt hangs with the square's points hanging down.
A handkerchief pointed-hem skirt is flattering to all, but especially for short-legged people because the points break up that horizontal hemline. No pattern is needed to make this skirt style.
