Mauve satin pleated skirt

Added Apr 13, 2009

by Jodi Wade

Budapest, Hungary






I didn’t use a pattern for this skirt. I didn’t realise how time consuming pleats are! Next time I would definitely do less pleats. I made this skirt for going on Spring picnics in. Haven’t had a chance to use it for that though yet. I put a pocket into one side, hidden in a pleat.

Material Notes

Mauve satin, pale pink cotton lining, fabric covered buttons (I was lucky enough to find a near perfect colour match)

    Love the colour and the fabric! It looks so fun to twirl around in. I definitely try to add sneaky pockets to all the skirts/dresses I make too. Love it, its so whimsy.
