I made a second version of the Burda mini pleated skirt in army green brushed twill. I added faux flap pockets with gold buttons on the front, and I omitted the faux welt pockets in the back that the pattern calls for.
It’s much more green in real life than the dull brown it looks like in photos. I tried my hardest but, you know, I got the ole “shoddy camera and cloudy skies” excuse going for me. More photos on my blog.
Cotton twill for shell, cotton shirting for facings, two gold shank buttons, zipper
