no zipper box pleat skirt

Added Apr 23, 2011

Paris, France






a simple grey skirt made with the leftovers of my high waisted trousers.
I didn’t have any zipper in my stash so I decided to use one of the side seam pocket to have the ease necessary to get in and out the skirt.

    This is brilliant, I had a piece of fabric I did not knwo how to use. I might try something similar. Will half a meter be enough do you think??? Well done, by the way, great piece!

    Looks great! But I still don’t get how you made it fit so well. Is there a button then?

    How clever, I wouldn’t have thought of that option at all!
