Description

I modified the linda pattern to make a full pleated skirt. I finished with a blind hem and black binding strips along the seams. I also have a side zipper closure and in the other side seal I added an inseam pocket. Overall I am very happy with the patterns, but the fabric itself is pretty stiff, wrinkles very easily, and doesn’t drape as I would have liked.

Material Notes

cotton, metal zipper, bias strips

      i just added quick instructions on how to add the box pleats which gives it a fuller look! Just click the instructions tab at the top.

      And thank you!

    Beautifully made, I actually like the fabric. Gives it body.

      thank you, it is wearing on me, after one more wash i think it’ll fall a little easier for my liking
