Added Jan 9, 2011
This skirt was inspired by a Louis Vuitton leather skirt from the fall 2010 collection. I have detailed instructions to make this skirt in my blog, The Dupioni Lounge.
I used brocade, but I think other fabrics such as silk taffeta or heavyweight cotton would be suitable to support the pleats. I have modified the Butterick 5032 pattern to create this skirt.
