Long long long time lurker but first time poster. I saw the idea for this here a long time ago that said to cut out the bottom half of a T-Shirt and use it for the waistband and then I figured out a perfect and precise way to do the pleating on my own becaue I'd do it wrong if I followed a tutorial. My first attempt came out really bad [I'll post that if you want] but my second on I absolutely adore. Here you go!

I could post a tutorial for my pleating method but I'm sure its nothing new and you old pros know just how anyway. This was my second sewing project ever, by the way.

That is absolutely adorable!  I think you need to include yourself in the "old pros" category.

Alright, I got a couple of requests for instructions so hopefully they are clear. I didn't take any pictures while I was making the skirt but I'll do some illustrations to explain. If it's confusing just ask me to explain and I will.

Thanks guys! I realize the tutorial doesn't work. I don't remember the password to my account and my host is never on so I can't use my site to host to image. I tried another site and the image is too large so it doesn't show. Sorry. I'll try to find somewhere to put it later.

Resized? No I don't think it has. I can see it perfectly when I click on it. You might want to try a 1024 resolution or something.
