|Proenza Schouler Mini|
I have been watching the runways and seeing a ton of these lovely short pleated skirts. I got to thinking that I could easily draft a pattern for a skirt like this for me. I have a lot of fabric I could use in my stash following the inspiration here.
The Proenza skirt is made from silk georgette. It is not my first gut reaction to use georgette for a pleated skirt, but then I began to imagine how the fabric would drape and move as I walk, How luxe and pretty it would be to pair this with a simple black blouse and some black tights with my fave black booties. Or how about an ivory sweater? I could really play this look up or down. It would be a nice transition piece too as it could be worn with or without tights to take it into spring. Now, to find the time, haha.
