This is my first go at the Inverted Pleat Skirt from the September 2012 issue of Burda. I made a size 38 at the waist and 40 at the hips, my standard adjustment. Be aware that the skirt does not fit as shown on the model, rather it sits on the high hip. I like this one, but next time I’ll adjust the pattern so that my skirt sits at the waist.
