I have decided that I want to make one skirt for every month this year. As I am currently unemployed, I can get a jump start on this skirt making. I am enjoying how quickly skirts come together, even if you line them. I have added a little counter to keep track of the number of skirts completed.
Without further ado……drumroll……the next skirt for 2011 is: McCall 8086 copyrighted in 1950. I had traced this pattern in December so it is ready to roll.
This is going to be a first for me: a skirt with pleats. I have made knife pleat trim for a Victorian ball gown but never a pleated skirt.
Material will be a heavy chocolate brown cotton blend. It has a little stretch to it. I hope it is not too heavy for the pleats!
