I was going to wait until I had better pictures of this skirt, but I got too excited and couldn’t wait to put it up! This is a modification of Burdastyle’s How-To quick party skirt where I left it below knee length (I had hemmed it quite a bit shorter, with 3 cute pin-tuck pleats at the bottom, but when I tried it on I looked like a cupcake! So I took them down.) I also pleated all around the waistband instead of gathering. Took longer, but was well worth it. I’m waiting for the weather to get warmer so I can skip to class in this!
