DIY OOTD 4 panel striped skirt.

Afternoon family!

I wanted to share with you my OOTD.  The best part of spring/summer is changing up my work attire.  Ok...... I haven't done much laundry this week lol!

The skirt below was constructed by essentially cutting (2) circle skirts and sewing them together as (1) i.e. 4 panels.  I made this skirt a couple of weeks ago and deleted the pictures my mistake :(.  The skirt is attached to a 2 inch waistband  with 1 inch pleats and a fashion jeans zipper in the back.  I had to work with the pleat size to get the a consistent pleat pattern.  to do this, I pinned the skirt to both ends of my 29 inch waistband, pinned the middle seam to the 14.5 inch (halfway) mark, then pinned the 7.25 inch mark for the second and 4th panel.  This put the seam for each panel 7.25 inches away from each other and allowed me to determine the amount and size of pleats I wanted.  once I was able to do this with on panel, I duplicated the same to the other four.

The fabric is actually upholstery fabric from JoAnn's that I have been holding onto for about 2 months. 

Shirt: H&M 
Shoes: L.A.M.B

Hope you like!

Happy Sewing!
