I didn't check for a while, so I didn't get to see all those replies.
Thank you very much for your support : I think I'll wear them. Actually, I think that Hubby said I wouldn't wear them to go to work.
I made them a little longer than the ones you can find in stores : those are more my son's girlfriends style
I just made the top part a little like classical A line skirt, without darts. Then, I measured the lenght I needed for the pleats, filled my iron with water and started to make them using always the same space between them.
I also hate zippers, but my belly says it looks better than elastic waists. You have to be patient, handsew them and don't forget to cherish your seam-ripper
Feel free to ask any other question you may have : I'll try to answer with my very bad English.
Oh, the White Stripes icon is mine : you can steal it.
