New York, New Yo...
I made this Maria Skirt in just a matter of hours and with only a few changes. I made the waistband much wider – almost three inches – and ended up having to take it in quite a bit. I also tacked down the top few inches of the pleats so they wouldn’t fly away quite so much. When I first tried it on after finishing, I almost wished I had just made the back straight down, with no pleats, because the pleats make my rear look larger than (I hope) it actually is…but then I realized I kinda liked it! I’m working this skirt, ladies :)
