DIY Sunburst Pleated Skirt Pattern

For those of you who always wanted to sew your own sunburst pleated circle skirt…Now is your chance!!!

We recently decided to offer a free downloadable pattern so that students and home sewers alike can cut their fabrics and send them to us to be professionally pleated in the same manner that we produce for industry professionals.

Below are a few sample skirts that we made using this same pattern and pleating:

Three short sunburst pleated silk skirts

 

Here is a scaled-down version of what the pattern will look like once fully assembled:

For more instructions on this sewing tutorial, download this pattern in it’s entirety.

How it Works:

1. Download our skirt pattern and sewing instructions.

2. Choose and cut your fabric.

3. Send your fabric to us for pleating. Once pleated, we’ll ship it back to you.

4. Sew your skirt and then WEAR IT!

 

Skill Level:

This is an intermediate to advanced project depending on the type of fabric you choose. Assuming that you know how to sew an invisible zipper,  stitch some basic shearing and hem fabric, your project should turn out very clean and professional.

Offer limitations: 

This offer applies to a sunburst pleated accordion skirt. The maximum length of the skirt to be pleated is 24 inches. There are no limitations to the number of pleated panels you order. The fabric must be pre-cut according to our specifications. If you prefer that we cut the fabric for you,  we will charge $5 per panel in addition.

Other Stuff:

In the event that you cannot find the fabric you are looking for, let us know and we can accommodate you – we have access to local fabric stores here in the New York City Garment Center and we also sell a wide variety of our own silks and polyesters on Etsy.

    George – You’ve done it again! I love the look of this bias pleated circle skirt and will have to download the pattern and send you my fabric – ready to be pleated. Not only do you do a phenomenal job of pleating, your technical expertise and your willingness to share this information with others is truly inspirational. I hope many seamstresses will take you up on your offer and work with you directly.
    I can’t wait to get my last two pieces that you pleated for me!
    thanks again.
