Description

A simple skirt I whipped up with Spool fabric, Burda Style’s box pleat tutorial and some bias tape around the hem. I love it! I can’t stop smoothing my hands over the box pleats and twirling. I loved the material so much that I thought box pleats would be a good way to play with the zigzags. What do you think?

    This fabric is seriously amazing. MUST GO TO SPOOL! The box pleats look very very cool with the zig zag pattern. <3

    The way the pleats break up the pattern while still preserving it makes the skirt so interesting!
