Pleated Plaid Skirt

I made this skirt using just a little over a yard of plaid flannel fabric and about 18 gold buttons. The flannel had been purchased so that I could make a nightshirt for my dad. However, when I had finished making him a nightshirt, I had just enough fabric left to make myself a skirt.

Plaid Skirt Front

The skirt was pretty simple, made from just two rectangles pleated in the front and the back. I didn’t even make a waistband!

Plaid Skirt Side

The most difficult part of the skirt was probably trying to get all of the buttonholes to line up properly. I would have used a simple side zipper, but I did not have one and I had just been to the fabric store. Since the skirt is made from flannel, it is very warm, which will be great for the fall and winter.

This outfit is made up of a shirt and skirt. The shirt is made out of pop tabs and fastens in the back with a zipper. The bustled skirt is held up with a tie in the front, with an uneven hemline: high in the front, and low in the back.

Red Queen

This is the “Red Queen” garment from the Alice in Wonderland collection.

This garment consists of a red plaid heart shape on a black corset, a red and black striped skirt with a large slit on the side, and a pair of red shorts. The corset is laced up in the back and the shorts have a front zipper, while the skirt requires only a clasp to keep it on.
