simple plaid skirt

Added Dec 22, 2008

Den Haag, Nether...






At first, I wanted to make a proper pleated skirt from this fabric, or maybe a kilt-like one. However, I realised it would be boring with the muted colours of this fabric. So I made this, very simple skirt: big pleats set in place only at the high waistband. I arranged the pleats to hide most of the lilac stripe in the plaid. Skirt has a lining.

Material Notes

1 meter of wool plaid, lining, blind zipper, fusible cotton interfacing

    This is a great skirt. The plaid is great and the fullness/pleats just makes it a perfect skirt!
