Simple Summer Skirt

I was inspired by Jalaru's post (this is where I should have a hyperlink, but I can't figure out how to do it.) on a simple skirt she made for her granddaughter.

I wanted an new skirt to wear to work on Friday. I grabbed some material I had in my stash and cut it out on Thursday night. I decided to see what three little pleats in the front and back would look like. It has an elastic waist so it was really quick.

Well, I didn't get it hemmed until today. Laundry kept me from finishing it on Thursday night. It was longer but Jessie thought I should make it shorter, so I cut off 8 inches before I hemmed it. I don't know if I should have done that. I love long full skirts.

Here is a close up of the pleats and gathers.

A cute simple comfortable summer skirt.
