Last week I made one of my girls a pleated denim skirt. I found a tutorial here on the Sew Delicious site. This is a very basic pattern that even a beginner sewer can accomplish. All you need is some elastic and the ability to sew a straight stitch. I found the directions very clear and easy to follow. I came across this site while searching for a denim skirt pattern that would be fairly quick and easy.
A simple foldover casing with elastic inserted on the backside only.
I added a tie to the back for fun.
I included a side panel to keep with the flow of the topstitching. I love topstitching denim, so that is something I did extra beyond the tutorial.
I might sew a couple of matching buttons on the front at the tops of the pleats when I find some. For now, it looks great even without. Cute! And absolutely perfect for school attire.
My other daughter has already put in her request for one. :)
