I needed a playful fall skirt.
I love the bright colors, and they look great with tights.
I had some red sateen left over from this dress. I love red and brights this year (have you seen my Pinterest board dedicated to them?) and something about a fun red, rather than a sexy red, appealed to me. So I went for something playful and fuller--not tight or clingy.
I wanted to do pleats for the fullness, and a simple waistband. You hardly need a pattern for a pleated skirt but I used Simplicity 2512 as a base, just for proportion. I cut out the A/B skirt but just used a straight waistband (and rather than gather, I pleated the skirt into it).
Here it is! Bright, fun, and sort of trans-seasonal.
Wow, I need to press things better. This is embarrassing. I promise I'll press it before I wear it out! I pressed it when I finished sewing, I swear, but then it was folded.
Gotta put together an outfit with it soon for How to Wear DIY! It looks like it'll be pretty versatile, right?
Anyone have any brilliant outfit ideas for it?
