Pulled Pleat Skirt DIY

With every season of Project Runway, I feel inspired to drape on my dress form.  They make it look so easy!  I lack their techniques, so made a very simple modification to make my skirt a little different.  Using this tutorial, I cut the skirt longer and pulled the pleat up through the waistband instead of gathering the front.  Pin pleat in place, snip excess at the waistband, and then even out your hem.  You can pull as little or much as you like - just stop whenever it gives you your desired look.

Fabric: 100% cotton, Joann's, 45" width

Difficulty: Easy

Time: ~1.5 hrs

  4. That's very cute and looks good on you! It reminds me of those skirts with the slight flare at the bottom of the skirt, only yours is front and center.
    I'd love to buy one off of you :)

    1. Aw, thanks so much, Joy! I'm going on a little Etsy hiatus at the moment, but if you're still interested in October, I'd be happy to make one for you :)
