Pleated skirts are popular again. In my opinion, this is not surprising, because they create a light, airy, romantic, feminine style! Especially, if the length is maxi.
What else attracts the pleated skirt besides the fact that it is now in trend? In my opinion, the first and most obvious thing that immediately comes to mind is convenience in handling it.
It does not need to iron. She can lie folded and look great after that. Therefore, taking it with you on a trip is a great idea that will provide a good appearance and save time, and the skirt will not take up much space (its weight is also small) in a bag with things.
Secondly, the pleated skirt is now combined with almost any top, so creating and changing the style with it is quite simple. Well, and one more indisputable advantage – this skirt looks good on any type of figure.
Pleated skirt do it yourself
With basic sewing skills, it is not difficult to sew such a skirt, it can take about an hour to complete.
So, first you need to purchase a corrugated fabric and decide on the cut – whether your skirt will be straight or flared and how voluminous. And also decide whether you need a lining or not.
Make a pattern, fold it in half and sew one stitch on a typewriter, and then on an overlock. This seam will be on the side. Fully crimped fabric will need to be processed along the bottom edge. If you decide to lining, but you need to make her pattern and connect with a skirt.
Then make a drawstring and stretch the gum, which is better to choose wider, otherwise the view will be less beautiful. And by ironing the edge of the lining with an iron, you can give the skirt some pomp. Then – wear it and shine!
