I have a strange taste in fabrics sometimes… hence the name of this skirt!
I used Simplicity 2215 by Cynthia Rowley as a base, only I decided to make all my pleats symetrical and to iron them all towards the outside ; so much for a pattern that’s precisely appreciated because of its asymetrical pleats!
