Just like I mentioned in my last post, I’ve recently been using up some of the smaller bits of fabric in my stash.
One such piece was a strip of thick, navy gabardine, which transformed nicely into a pleated skirt.
To make this skirt, I literally pleated a big rectangle onto a smaller rectangle for the waistband. I don’t have much more to say about his, but I do know that this will go with pretty much everything see in my wardrobe. I’m quite proud that I managed to keep this simple rather than adding funky trims or crazy decorations.
Although, my favourite bit is the fun waistband lining.
How do you make your wardrobe staples more exciting to sew and wear? Do you prefer making these types of items or more fancy dresses and party clothes?
