A very simple project for a short-time (it took me 4 hours I think), the only difficulty was to find the good fabric: something quite rigid. I decided to sew in the front until 30 cm down. The pleat opens then.
The hem is a simple oversewing.
The fabric is a black wool. There is an invisible black zip too.
