Striped Skirt With Box Pleats

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.
