Faux-leather Skirt

As many on this forum, I made this skirt back in November 2014, mainly for traveling. It was easy to wear and to mix-and-match with various tops. The pleats are great. As my fabric wasn’t as large as needed I had to adjust the middle pleats. I like that the back has no pleat so there is less bulk… I lined the skirt with bemberg lining fabric.
The shirt is a Burda style magazine pattern (125-November-2001). I used a poly-cotton so no wrinkle ;-)

    This is soo gorgeous! I love the how that fabric drapes. So beautiful, you did such a good job on the pleating. Also always a fan of a skirt with pockets! Makes them so much better.

      Thank you Haylee! I must admit this faux-leather fabric has a very nice drape and looks almost like the “real” thing!
