For a night in town, me and my daughter made this 50ies inspired pleated skirt. We cut the front piece 100×55 cm and fully pleated it down to 34×55 cm. Then we made the back piece likewise, only in two halves. The width of the pleats was adjusted so the side seams are at the inner fold. We added a pair of really large pockets (they actually meet at midwaist…) to have storage for cells, money, tickets, cameras. We opted for an extremely high waist, simply made by cutting a rectangular piece 70×20 cm (waist 68 cm). Remember to take a long zipper (maybe 30 cm) – we didn’t!
