I have a new, easy pleated skirt pattern to share with you that will streamline your figure and look great. This A-line shaped skirt is so easy to sew that you'll want to make a few skirts and they will last you for many years. Made of linen, cotton, light wool or fabrics with a bit of body, this skirt will give you an effortless classy and elegant look. Lately, I have had a few requests and since there are a few that relate to each other I thought a sew along with alterations was going to cover many of the questions and requests you guys keep sending my way. I must say that I do enjoy getting mail and comments from you and, believe it or not, requests make my life easier since I don't have to wonder what am I going to write about next. So thank you and keep them coming! I have divided this tutorial and sew-along into four parts so I can share with you a few details that will make this an easier learning experience. I really want you to end up with a great finished product! Part One: Print, cut and sew the skirt and pleats. Part Two: How to sew a lining with an invisible zipper to a skirt. Part Three: How to make pleats and hem a pleated skirt. Part Four: How to fit and alter the pattern to make the skirt bigger or smaller.
