This is my second try at making the Judy skirt. I made the first one out of some inexpensive cotton, but it just didn’t hold up very well (very wrinkly by the end of the day!). This is try two, out of a lightweight wool. So far the pleats are holding up much better on this one, although the polyester binding is a little thick and causes the panel to bow out in places.
