I am in love with all the pleated maxi and mini skirts that have been floating around the place as of late, so I decided that I needed one myself. The fabric is from an op shop for only $4 and is a sheer chiffon type fabric. Very ligth and floaty, perfect for the type of skirt I wanted :)
I spent several nights with the iron in front of the tv pleated the whole length of the fabric which amazingly turned out to be enough to fit around my waist and a little bit more. Once that ordeal was over (I really don’t like ironing) the rest was easy. Just a thin self interfaced waistband, invisible zipper and two hook-and-eye closures at the top and an easy twice folded hem at the bottom.
Since the fabric is sheer I still have to make a slip to go underneath it, but I definitely love it. It’s so much fun to walk in. Espechially when it’s windy.
A little bit more here :)
Wine/mauve chiffon (the picutre make the fabric look alot more purple then it actually is)
