Zipper Pleated Skirt
Going to a convention a few years back I wanted a themed outfit shared with my character. I took two different colored fabrics. I picked my favorites, black and a wine color. I made strips at a desired length and width. I sewn the skirt together leaving it flat on the floor and then ironed the pleats making the black cover over the wine. Once the pleats were finished I hemmed and then pinned and attached the zippers so they zipped downwards creating it so when they are all zipped it would be completely black. Top band was placed having one zipper added to attached the skirt so it can be taken on and off. Just make sure zippers are pulled down when sitting so your not sitting on the zippers, lol can be a pain in the tush literally.

Worn it for multiple occasions and still one of my favorite skirts :)

The shirt, neck and cuffs were just a modified dress shirt. Corset was pre-bought :)

There were about 21 zippers, big thanks to ebay in wholesale buying lol. Im sure someone of smaller size wouldn't require as many.

No worries, I was making a joke, didn't mean to make you feel like you said anything wrong. If you do decide to make one all I did was measure and divide to make the panels an even set with atleast, I wanna say 6 inches for myself but again do what you think will be best, that will let you know how many zippers lol I even used one zipper as my way to get in and out on the side with the button on the top band without having to worry about having a different way of getting in. So looking at it, you'd never know which panel had the opening.

oh phew Happy that's actually pretty clever...but I would have trouble remembering which panel had the opening probably! I can't wait to make one now! I'll have to wait until school is over though Happy
