Description

A second-hand English curtain made into a skirt. A simple pleated design consists of four 50/50cm squares of fabric. Six pleats 5cm in the front and back. The fabric is rather stiff, so it keeps a nice “puffed” form.

Material Notes

Old curtains, buttons

Difficulty

Intermediate

    Love it! And I like how you’ve toughened up the whole look with the tights, boot and jacket.
