I have a pleated skirt pattern. I want to make it gathered instead. Do I just simply gather the skirt instead of pleating it? Or are more complicated (or hopefully – simple) alterations in store for me? Any tutorials or more information one can provide a seamstress in need? Thanks a lot!

    Many times I have just gathered it in with no ill effects. Give it a try on your muslin and see how you like it. You can make any adjustments from there.
