This is my first attempt at any form of clothing ( well except for the skirt in year 7 textiles)..though I made a prototype first. I didn’t have a pattern but used a book called Sew What skirts, which explains how to make skirts without patterns..I copied the way the pleats are folded from another skirt I own (I couldn’t work it out at first)
I got the pleat from a fabric shop on ebay..
