Fine, checked pleated fabric in blue-pink-green - 49,5 € / m
Fine pleated fabric with checked print in blue, pink and green on a black background. This fabric is also available without pleats, so you can combine it with a blouse or make a dress out of it.
This fabric must be used in counter thread. The selvedge is used as the hem.
You can cut the fabric in two in the middle, then you have two equal pieces of approximately 70cm. This is then the maximum length. You need twice the amout for a long skirt.
To know how much fabric you need, at least take the width of your hips with extra fabric to gather. Of course, you determine how much yourself, but a guideline is 30 à 40% extra.
For example: I want a pleated skirt with a midi length (so max 70 cm). My hip width is 105cm. I take 35% extra, around 140 cm. You then divide that by two, so 70cm fabric.
Other variants of this pleated fabric are also available.
