Description

The first attempt with this stars patterned cotton was to make a simple gathered skirt, which turned out weird as the fabric is too stiff. I replaced the gathers with box pleats and I like the result.

Material Notes

cotton, cotton piping, invisible zipper

    Really nice. Black tights and top just sets it off perfectly. A nice figure and a simple pattern. That is true style.

    I love this skirt. I can see how the pleats would work better than gathers. I like the red stripe under the yoke too.
