Your skirt pleads for patternless pleating

Filed Under: sewing

Pleated skirts have been around forever, it would seem. I wore them as a little girl in the 70's, as I am sure every other girl did. Moms wore them too. I know that I own one or two pleated skirts, but I don't wear skirts very often, mostly because I don't really take the time to iron a pleated skirt when I need to. Shame on me!

You can make your own pleated skirts without a pattern. You choose the material, make the pleats, and presto, you have a pleated skirt. Okay, just kidding, of course there is more to it than that! Hop on over to an article from the pages of Threads Magazine. You will learn how to make a pleated skirt with wash proof pleats. The instructions and pictures are clear and concise, teaching you how to make the pleats, how to set them with an iron, and how to fit your pleats to the waistband of the skirt. I so want to make my own right now! How about you?
