Description

This project started with two meters of metallic gold cotton & linen blend and a vision for some sort of Sporty-Luxe pleated skirt! I’ve never pleated anything in my life and didn’t know what was coming: 4.2 meters of hand-pleating later and borderline RSI…it was so worth it! The best part was discovering that due to the lycra content of the fabric, the pleats virtually melted into place and have stayed there every since.

    So amazing…! Great job – you should be proud of this! Your skirt is much much better than the model picture. How long did this take you to make? Seems like you had a “baptism by fire” (as the saying goes) with making pleats.

      Thanks a bunch! The pleating took a whole day broken in half. Probably 6-8 hours…was fun but never again :)
