Here is a pleated skirt I made...let me know what you think:


The box pleats took FOREVER but I just took my time and did a lot of ironing:


White is the new tan:


Comments appreciated!

Cool, I love fun fabric.  Now if only they could make some with Morrisey's face all over it.

haha maybe at first...

Thank you for all the comments! I've been entertaining people by their guesses about whose faces are on the skirt...so far we've picked out Twiggy, Elvis, and Paul McCartney.

I got it from Jo-Ann's, I think it was $2 a yard.

I thought the skirt was pretty straightforward and the tutorial didn't confuse me at all. It took me a couple of tries to do the box pleats, but I got it in the end. Thanks so much for posting it!
