Thank you for all the comments on the Karl Lagerfeld skirt. I wore it to work today and it is just as comfortable as I had hoped for. Obvislouly this is a skirt that will only work in seasons where opaque tights is suitable, but since I live in Sweden that means a pretty good chunk of the year.
The skirt has kick pleats and I wanted to show a simple method for how to mark the pleats using an awl. A few years ago I got really tired of tracing paper, they are messy to use and don’t work on fine fabrics. So I decided to try using the awl method instead, apparently this is a standard procedure in the garment industry. And for kick pleats and such this is really a fantastic and quick method. And don’t worry about ruining the fabric, mostly you’ll just push away the threads and after washing (or just a dab of water) most holes will be invisible. Also I have two awls, one smaller for delicate fabrics and one thicker which is great for sturdy fabrics
