Pink Linen Skirt

My brother-in-law got married last weekend.  My new sister-in-law had all of her sisters and sisters-in-law make skirts out of the same pink linen fabric to wear for the wedding pictures; sort of a bridesmaid-esque deal. Here's mine:


I used McCalls 5591 for the skirt. I think the box pleats worked well with the drape of the linen, giving the skirt a little life.

We were supposed to wear it with a white top.  I fudged it a little and wore this white cardigan over a gray undershirt.  I thought the necklace was perfect for tying the whole look together!

I have a project that I have been avoiding for several reasons. I have been trying to figure out what kind of gathering I want to do. Box pleats were on my list of possibilities. After seeing your skirt I am convinced! Box pleats it is! I'll get busy this evening~maybe tomorrow! ;)
