Pleated mini skirt with back lacing

This baby here was born with some pain, because I chose in a trace of complete insanity to use a longer zipper than the yoke (waist-part) is…>_<…but I won this fight! haha! :D
It was some time consuming work too, to get all the pleats ironed in. But to sum it up, my baby turned well and it was very cheap:) I just had to pay the zipper (which was about 4€), because the fabric was a piece I got as a present and I had some red left-overs for the lining. The ribbon is also a piece that was only fluttering around, but I’m thinking of changing it into some leather strap. So I’m quite satisfied :3

Material Notes

woolen tartan, zipper, (lining), ribbon




Garment Type
Goth/Gothic Lolita, Military, Punk

    wow!!! Das ist ein großartiges Baby!!! Ich bewundere Deine “knackigen” Falten (äh, ich meine die des Rocks) die kriegt man nur durch bügeln so gleichmäßig hin? und die Schnürung hinten ist eine tolle Idee! Der Rock passt wie angegossen – tolle Arbeit!!!!

      Danke :D
      Jup, da waren gut 2 Stunden bügeln drin… Auch wenn mir vorkommt, dass sie ein wenig komisch fallen- nochmal nachbüglen sollte helfen ;) Zur gleichmäßigkeit hab ich mir unterstützung aus meinem schlauen Buch geholt und rechenarbeit betrieben…aber Tartan ist generell recht freundlich, wenn man die Faltenbreite/-tiefe richtig wählt :P
      Daaaanke nochmal :3
      Hast meinen Tag gerettet ;D

      Thanks :) I don’t know if the world recognized it, but I’m in love with lacing ;)
