One of my favourite blogs http://wkdesigner.wordpress.com/ closed recently. Every monday i used to eagerly visit the blog for another new post from the designer. When he decided to stop blogging i realized that i had never really tried making anything from the blog. Everything initially seemed too difficult. Finally decided to give this pleated skirt a try. Its called the XOX skirt since the construction of the skirt is based on the block XO where X and O are refer to the length and width of the block. The skirt is made up of three tiers. I can now say i've taken my first step in understanding construction of a pattern. I'm quite happy with the way this skirt has turned out.
