Here is what the Enid Gilchrist box pleat skirt looks like if you follow her pattern – and I rather like it! Add that it only took a few hours to make and thats always a winner in my book.
The only changes I would make would be to interface the waist band before attaching it to the skirt! I used waist band petersham to keep the waist band ultra firm, and used a vintage pink zipper down the side.

The fabric is last season from Spotlight, its a stretch cotton sateen with the stretch going against the stripe – ? I’m baffled as to why someone would use it that way, with the stripes going up their body.
I’m trying my hardest to finish the Petal Yoke Cardigan before winter really kicks in, it might be a slow knit but at least its enjoyable!
