I bought these shoes the other day that goes great with skirts and realized that my mr. Kilt owns more of them than I do.  How very ungirly of me! 
So I decided to make one, just because I can.


Since the fabric is thick and soft I had to sew each fold to make it stay the way I wanted. I of course followed my tradition of screwing something up by realizing too late that sewing the bottom hem BEFORE the folds would have been smart. But hey, at least I found out I have an overlock-ish type stitch on my magic machine, haha.



Due to my weakness for tiny pretty details I ended up using hooks, eyelets and a silk-ribbon as closing, instead of a simple zipper.
I admit I was terrified making the holes for the eyelets, thinking of how much work had gone to waste if I screw it up, but I was lucky, murphy was on vacation and it all worked out fine. 

I'm super-proud and would love to hear what you think about it Smiley

That skirt is absolutely adorable! I love all of the pleats, especially coupled with the feminine ribbon. Did you draft your own pattern? It looks so perfect on you.

Inez:  Yeah, I created pattern and everything on my own, figure-sewn, sort of speak. Smiley

Incredible skirt! What sort of material is that? Is it wool or brushed cotton?
