Ithaca, New York...
I love, love, loved this skirt as soon as I saw it posted online. The idea of using bright, primary colors really appealed to me, so I made my version in teal and lime green. I followed the pattern pretty much straight up for this one, and didn’t have any problems (aside from it taking me a long time to do all those pleats!). I know lots of the comments in the forum suggested that this pattern might not be so flattering to the larger bodied ladies, but I made the largest size available and I think it looks pretty good! I figure if big Scottish dudes can look good in pleats, so can I. I plan on making another one of these as soon as I have a chance to visit a real fabric store and get some nice wool (no fun colors of wool to be had out here in upstate NY…)
