Well, I've been registered for a while, but since then, been too lazy to finish making anything. But thought I should really post something.
So, here's the first thing I made. I made it last year or the year before.http://www.perfectdoak.co.uk/random/purpletartanpleatedskirt.JPG
You can't really see the pleats in the picture because I remember when I was making this, I spent ages working out where to pleat the fabric so the pattern matched up!!
I mananaged to make it a few sizes too big though. Oops! I think I measured an existing skirt and worked out the measurements to use from that, not very well obviously.
To remedy this, I sewed one of the pleats on top of the next one (if that made any sense) to take it in a few inches which worked quite well.
Something went a bit wrong with the zip situation but it functions.
