Description

I made a pleated skirt with a side zipper and a bow in the back. I added removable little suspenders the go on/off with a fancy button. This was my first time doing a button hole on a project that it would be seen. It has pockets in with the pleats. I had a little trouble with sizing. I did not use a pattern.

Material Notes

Funky sailboat fabric, thread, silver thrifted buttons

      Thank you!!! I love it. I might try to make it a little higher on the waist and shorten the suspenders a little bit.
