Stylish Skirts
Here the classic box pleat skirt is worked in striped linen, with the stripes running vertically on the inner part of the pleats for contrast. As a favorite for spring and summer, this piece is a sure thing, but try it in a different fabric for fall and winter. It would also look great with the inner part of the pleats made in a different fabric.
