Description

I have used Winter jersey for this skirt and since it’s grey it can be used to any color :) I like how the pleats are and it was easy to make. For the lining I have used a light knitted stretch poly, but it wasn’t nessesary to use lining. The pattern is from a Scandinavian sewing magazine 09/2011.

Material Notes

Jersey and knitted stretch poly.

    Really complex pleats. But they keep the form and aren’t sagging so the choice of the fabric was right. And grey with red are great partners ( nice pedicure, by the way:-))
