so...what are best friends for if you can't get her to make you a stripper skirt.

My best friend comes to me and tells me that she knows what she wants to give her boyfriend for his birthday and she needs my help. She wants to do the little catholic school girl thing for a fun night in. My part? She needs the outfit. She had the shirt, I had the shoes and stockings, but she needed the skirt. She picked up some plaid fabric and within an hour we had this skirt. I was going to make it Velcro, but realized I was out. We used snaps instead, which I think the pearl snaps add a little touch. Smiley I did not want to spend a lot of time on the skirt, so I just used the salvage edge as the hem on the pleats. I would probably make it a tad shorter. Either way...another one for the books of crazy things we do for our friends.

good job! it looks a lot like a skirt i have...an actual stripper skirt. they are a lot shorter and you were also right about wanting to use velcro, its faster to take them off...hmm...that might be TMI. anyway, i really like it and im sure your friends boyfriend will too. Wink

Nope..just winged it...Make several sections of pleats, sewed them together and then made the waist panel and attached the pleats to that. Added the buttons...and off she went.
