A pleated dress from vintage curtains

I made this skirt from a curtain that I found from a second hand store. The fabric is very thick, so it’s good for the cold days. It has pleats on the front and the back.

The pattern is from a Finnish sewing book Joka tyypin kaavakirja.

      Thank you so much! It was so nice to cut and sew it since the fabric was so sturdy. If only I could find those vintage fabrics so easily! :)
