This was my first project to include pleats, and while they're not perfect, they're close enough for me.


The pattern, as the topic title implies, is Simplicity 4963.  I went by the finished measurements of the garment and not the given sizes, because I wanted to make sure it would hang low on my hips (I cannot STAND high waistbands, as fantastic as they may look sometimes).  The fit ended up perfect.



I think it's going to get a lot of wear.  It's blogged here, though I don't think there's much there that isn't in this post.

Hey, quick question.
My daughter loves your skirt, she's been looking for some plaid like that. She wondering where you bought it from?

It was a red tag fabric at JoAnns at least four years ago, and thus would probably not be easy to find now.  Alas!
