    I have only made one skirt out of this pattern, but I day dream about all the possibilities. I just saw a wonderful skirt at Max Mara… really really cute… and I think I could be able to make something similar to it with this pattern. The skirt has some pleats on the front… and I was wondering if someone has tried that out.

    I say yes!
    Perhaps baste the pleats and have a play , see how well they sit?

    I’m sure it would be divine.
    I would work out how many and approximately how deep I wanted the pleats to be, then calculate the skirt width from that to check against the original skirt and see if the “fullness” is similar.
    More maths but quite fun I you’re into it. Or you can play with basting as Nicole said.
    There will be a blog post soon about pleats the maths-nerd way. 🙂

    Maths, what a headache! Pleats would look nice, but I would just wing it myself.

    Thank you ladies for your support. I will definitely try it out… My Latin american half tells me to eyeball the size of the pleats… and my german side tells me “stop, do the math”. I will come up with a formula and let you know how it went or if it worked.
