I think this is my third pleated a-line skirt in my wardrobe, but they’re great at hiding the flab! This time I used Simplicity 2698: Here’s my version:
Pardon my lack of ironing…. oops! I got this fabric at Joann’s. It’s always a treat when you can find decent fabric there now and then. The skirt has a total of 6 pleats and side pockets, which I don’t usually include in my garments but I thought I’d do something different.
Here’s one of the pockets. A more diligent sewer would’ve had all the stripes match up, but that’s just not my priority. Actually, they do match up on the other pocket but that was a happy accident. You can also see the tab of the invisible zipper, which I’m now using all the time! I wish I’d gotten over my fear of them sooner. They really are very easy.
