Pattern Description:

A twirly, feminine and just down right fabulous skirt, that(tm)s what Paula is.
Make her in a plain or fun printed twill or cotton for summer or in fake leather, denim, animal prints or pinstriped wool for winter. Wear with tank tops, blouses, or tees and with ballet flats, heels or boots.
This skirt can do it all.

PLUS you get to twirl!

The knee length (but easy to lengthen to the very trendy midi length!) Paula Pleat Skirt features back darts, centre back inverted pleat, front side pleats and centre front inverted pleat " giving the skirt fullness without adding bulk to the tummy area (cause we don(tm)t want that!). It has a curved waistband and a side seam invisible zipper and can be made with facing or with complete lining.
