Zlata is a lovely, feminine and figure flattering skirt that every lady should have in her wardrobe. The skirt features box pleats that give it nice volume and flare.
The pattern is given in three variations, to accommodate for various preferences. Views A and B have inverted box pleats that transform into belt loops. These unusual details will make your skirt pop among many others. View B has a border which can be enhanced by using fabrics in contrasting colors. View C is another variation on the skirt, which has regular box pleats and no belt loops. The skirt also features fully functional front pockets.
Inspired by the ’60s, Zlata will be your wardrobe staple. The best thing about this skirt is that it can be made of cotton, linen or wool, making the pattern current all year round. Trim the skirt with piping, trim bands or lace, or style it with a tulle tutu to make it more or less formal looking.
