I usually go for a more elaborate type of clothing like your shirt but the crispness of the white and black lines go so amazingly well with the box pleat ruffles at the bottom for once I like the nice clean crisp look and I hate modern clean lines, so you just preformed a miracle!

That skirt is great. I'm a sucker for stripes. I used to have a great article for pleating bookmarked but I can't seem to find it now. The basic idea of what you do is you 1) measure the front side of your pleat (this is the part that will stick out from underneath of the previous pleat). 2) you measure how far under you're going to pleat and double this 3) add the first measurement you took. So basically say you're going to make a pleat that's 2 inches, And you want each pleat to be 1 inch deep. You'd have 2 inches of fabric on the front side, you'd fold it back one inch, and then there would be three inches of fabric before you folded it back under (1 inch) again.

In my crappy picture below the visible part of each pleat extends to the end of the purple rectangle to it's right. The purple area shows where 1) the visible fabric of the pleat shows, 2) the fabric that's folded under, and 3) the fabric that is folded back towards the face of the pleat.  So, basically you have 2 inches, fold back 1 inch, fold forward 3 inches, and fold back 1 inch and fold over 3 inches (note that the first pleat may be a bit different depending on how you finish it. I'm sorry if that doesn't make enough sense. I'll try to explain it better if needed. But basically you figure out how wide you want each pleat, and how deep you'll need it using that formula and then you know how much pleating you'll need to fill a certain area.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
