Pleated skirt

Hello readers!

Lately I’ve been feeling a bit more adventurous with my sewing machine and I really wanted a new skirt for Christmas so I looked for an easy pattern to start with. I found this really cool pleated skirt patternΒ and it looked easy enough so I got started.

Getting the measurements right didn’t take long but it took me a bit longer to figure out how to do the pleats. I ended up using this videoΒ on youtube, which I thought was so useful. It shows you all kind of pleats but I used the box pleats.

And here it is!

I’ve ended up wearing it at least 3 times since Christmas and I got lots of compliments from people. Regardless, I am so please with how it turned out πŸ™‚ Hopefully I can extent my sewing skills in 2017!
