I enjoyed making my first skirt, though it is a bit big and sits lower than intended. I did this to learn pleating, very interesting to make!
The instructions for this, in my opinion, need alot of improvement. There is little direction in how to do the pleats and when to hem – the pictures say more than the words! I’ll help anyone needing it :)
It has a slanted grain, almost like corduroy, and has some weight to it.
