I had never done pleats before and decided to try it. Its a simple pleated short skirt. It was made in 2 pieces. One thick waist band and One strip of fabric that I pleated. The skirt closes with purple and green safety pins.
Green and purple plaid knit material. 4 colored safety pins. (oh and an iron and wet washcloth to make the pleats.)
