Neon Pleated Midi Skirt

A simple project today, but sometimes the print makes the project. The neon color doesn't photograph quite as bright as it is in person--it's bright. It makes my hot pink coat look drab (almost). The background is an off-white, so this is going to be a hard one to match things with, but... I couldn't resist.

I made this midi skirt without a pattern, just using the geometric repeat on the fabric to determine the pleat widths. I alternated double and single pleats, inspired by the double box pleats in my recent floral skirt (and that gorgeous $1000 Erdem skirt from that post--please someone click this affiliate link and purchase it so I get the commision and can buy more fabric, thanks).

I believe that most of my readers are proficient skirt-makers already, but if you are not, please let me know in the comments if you would like a few similar simpler projects and/or accompanying tutorials!

ps: i'd predict you can expect to see this door a lot in the future--it's a nice photo spot and happens to be right across from a new-ish brewery in town, ponysaurus. they have a spectacular patio.

  1. So nice to see your wedding shoes being worn. The fabric really doesn't look that bright in the photo....do you have plans to sew a spring weight top to wear with the skirt?

    1. It is so much brighter in person--the instagram I snapped of the hem is more true to life. I would like to sew a spring top for it! It sorrrrt of goes with white, but looks better with off-white which I don't have a lot of. We'll see!

    1. Thanks, Nilla! I have about 1/3 yard left, and I have no idea what to do with it but I don't want to toss it since it's just so cool!

  4. I'm thinking of doing a simple pleated skirt for the next spoolettes high tea. Unless I get seduced by a pattern between now and then.

    1. Sometimes a simple silhouette is the best option :) It can make a big impact when you have a great fabric!
