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!
