This skirt was on my mind for a while, now. When the Sidonie pattern came up, it seemed to be easily convertable to my design. I uploaded it with the plan to use it one day. The MiniChallenge gave me a finnal push. First, I sew the skirt according to the pattern, the hip area turned out to be to curvy for me, so I had to straighten them up. Next step was the waide waist band. I did it using the “try it on, pinch, pin and sew” technique. It took a while. Then I did the pleats. I am thinking about making a how-to, but I am not shure how it will work out yet.

Material Notes

This velvet fabric and cought my eye because of it’s beautifil color; dusty rose. Its very thick and not realy streachy. I thing it might a tapestry fabric.

    You have created a refined, sophisticated skirt. The high waist is so stylish, and the pleats add a nice vintage touch.

    Very creative. What a classy look. Man, I wish high waisted things didn’t make my belly look huge, because I love the look of this.

    I like it! But then, I usually love high waisted skirts…. ;) It must have been hard to get those pleats in with such a heavy fabric, so good idea to sew them in place.
