Pleated Skirt Tutorial

Have you heard of Skirting the Issue?
The really amazing charity event that Simple Simon & Co. are doing?
They are having bloggers post simple skirt tutorials that people can make for girls in Foster Care. I am so excited to be a part of it.
So, on to my tutorial so you can start making some skirts for some amazing girls!

To start off, you will need the pieces. Here is my formula:

If you don't have a model or the measurements you can use these (pictures from pinterest here and here.)

Use the number 4 for the hip measurements.

Now that you have that all cut out, lets start sewing!
Oh! And all seam allowances are 3/8" unless otherwise stated.

Start with your skirt front.

And now you have an adorable skirt!
Thanks for sewing along!
