Hey everybody!! I've said this a couple times before but I love pleated skirts, they just don't love me!! LOL!! I feel like they add extra fullness to me, and I don't like that! And on top of that, my measuring is always off! (thats why I love patterns lol) But this skirt here...I LOVE!!! I don't feel fuller in it, and thats was the goal!!
I grabbed this peacock fabric from Walmart, and decided to try a knife pleat maxi. I'm so happy I did! I did not measure them accurately, but they are about 2 inches pleats. So from starting one inch away from one edge, I started my pleats, and finished them with one inch left on the other side (the one inches are for the zipper). I did not have enough fabric for pockets, or my waistband!!! So I just grabbed some extra lightweight denim I have lying around and used it for my waistband!! Pocket will be in the next one for sure!!
