School Skirt With Flat Piping and Pleated Pockets


I made my little Kindy kid a new school skirt to wear in the Winter months.

I used the Lauren Twirl Skirt pattern I tested here but this time I added a couple of extra features.

I used the pleated pocket tutorial from Hart and Sew to add a couple of big pockets to the front.
I then separated the main part of the skirt from the band at the bottom with some flat piping.
I found a tutorial on how to do this here.

The skirt is made from broadcloth cotton

I think it should look really cute with some thick black tights and boots.

Linking up here.


  1. Gorgeous, Sherry!!! Love the red and white trims...

  2. Love it! The touch of color really makes the skirt.

  3. Great touches Sherry! I LOVE the big pockets! Thanks for linking up.

  4. I love those pockets. The red and white finish it off nicely! Thank you for the link to the flat piping tutorial, I've been thinking about using piping this week:)

  5. So very cute! Love the big pockets and the red and white touches. :)
