Paco Peralta - Pleated Skirt
Next on my list of things to sew this fall is the Pleated Skirt pattern by Paco Peralta. You can purchase his patterns in his Etsy shop. This skirt is originally drafted to be a midi-length skirt, but because of my fabric selection, I am going to shorten it to knee length.
The fabric I've chosen is a vintage wool plaid that I've had for quite a while. I got it over five years ago and I know it is much older than that. It is a classic plaid and I think it will make a versatile skirt for fall.
For the lining, I need to check my collection or pick up some navy blue lining. I'll do that tomorrow. As a side note, the lining is drafted differently than the skirt - it is drafted as a straight skirt rather than pleated like the skirt.
This skirt shouldn't be too hard, but it looks like a busy weekend, so it might not get finished until next week.
Parting Shot: Getting There. The fall colors are starting to show nicely in the mountains and in the next couple of weeks will be at peak. I was hiking yesterday and was able to get this photo of the eastern portion of Crawford Notch.
