My Folded Front Skirt is the first of several experimental pieces working with folds, pleats, and pintucks. I also wanted to create an unstructured waist area that could accommodate several waist sizes
The color combination of the skirt, facing, and buttons really works for me. The unstructured waist area has the look of a nicely finished skirt and gives some flexibility in the waist size.
If I were to make this again, I would shift the folded area a bit more towards the hip. I might also curve off the lower corners so those edges don’t look so harsh.
