Lipstick red pleated skirt

Added Nov 21, 2013

I had my eye on the Tibi silk faille skirt for a little while, however it was way too expensive for me, and it sold out very quickly! So i decided that i would make one myself!!

I studied as many images of the skirt as i could! I made an inverted pleat pattern and stitched away!

I was a little worried about purchasing silk faille because of the cost of the fabric, but i am soooo glad i did, it was such wonderful fabric with so much body!! the skirt would just not be the same without it!!

Material Notes

Silk faille – NY fabric centre
Italian lining- spotlight

    This is such a gorgeous piece! I love the beautiful rich cherry red color as well as how the skirt sits wonderfully on you. Very classic with a modern twist.
