Right I started sewing my skirt which has 2 pleats front and back. When I had cut the material out I had use carbon paper to transfer the pattern markings on to the fabric but when I took the paper pattern off the paper I found that the marking hadn't come out very well so I had to do them again. The paper I'm using used to be my mothers and is older than I am so maybe I should invest in some more! Once I had my head around how the pleats worked (even though I've used this pattern before, I had to get the other skirt out to remind myself!) I was away and stitching!
