Description

I absolutely fell in love with the LV leather box pleat skirt (2010 FALL RTW). So, this is my first attempt. It took me months to get past the planning stage… I like to be really sure before i cut fabric.
So, i cut out a half-circle skirt pattern and added the sections for the tops of the box pleats. I don’t think that really makes sense. Sorry.
Anyhow, I like the back clasp. Now i have to figure out how to wear the skirt. None of my tops really go…

Material Notes

3-ish yards of pleather
red zip
leather stud clasp thingy
red bias tape

Intermediate

    love it so in right now and willbe as long as you want it. i agree with ladyshape on the styling. Not sure your style but you could pair it with a band tshirt and whatever for shoes (flats, boots, ankle boots, converse flats) whatever. just have fun!! You did a really good job!!

    Very cool. I would wear it with a grey marl slouchy t-shirt tucked in and high black chunky shoe-boots with a peep toe. And bright red lipstick. Hmmmm. Where did you get the leather?

    Absolutely fabulous! How about combining it with a corsage-like top, like the contour bust pattern by miasu, but with straps? or just a simple white t-shirt? Wish I were brave enough to wear somethin as cutting edge as this…
