Unfinished Project #1 : another pleated skirt





I bought this super light weight denim at Vogue fabrics last month with plans to make a second, more casual pleated summer skirt. Since I didn't finish it last month, it became number one on my pile of unfinished projects.

I was able to whip it up last night in a few hours as my husband watched the recaps of the Wimbledon match.

I made couple of changes this time :

A. I cut 3 inches off of the top of the skirt because I knew that I wanted it to sit much lower on the hips than the last one.

B. Because this was going to be much more casual, I omitted the facing and used some yellow double fold bias tape to finish off the top instead.

Conclusion - I love it. It makes me want to go to the farmers market.
