Originally the skirt was supposed to be gathered but the pleats were better suited with the 60’s style I was going for. I had never used piping before and it turned out really well. The only thing I would change is the way the straps turned out, but likely, I am just obsessing.
I bought the yellow fabric in Downtown Los Angeles for $1.00/yard.
