40 Inverted french seams

This was my mathematical skirt.
I made it from 40 panels and did the french seams inside out so they look like little pleats.

I put a skin coloured lining under so you can see the pleated effect better.

I was going to add a wide band of the same fabric and even bought some more but it went MIA so it stays as a knee length skirt.

Now I just have to get the veins on my legs zapped so I can wear it.

Material Notes

Very lightweight silk cotton with raised dots




Garment Type
Cotton, Silk

    Very nice! Don’t worry about your legs…they will be mesmerized by the skirt. Besides, it’s fall, wear some nice hose and no one will ever know the difference. Congrats on a very interesting idea!
