InstructionsI used the tips from Sew4Home how to make box pleats.
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Retro / Vintage, Romantic, Casual
I used a cotton designer fabric from Robert Kaufman called Who's That Girl. I had some vintage buttons in my stash that were just perfect
What was your inspiration?
My inspiration was the fabric such a wonderful print. The buttons were a perfect match and this was the first time I've attempted box pleats.
What are you most proud of?
The whole look of the skirt. The box pleats took a bit of time to get them looking the way I pictured it. It is a very flattering skirt to wear.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Measure correctly. I used the 4" ,2" ,method to create my look. I also interfaced the band on one side to add structure.
