This red flannel checked pleated skirt has an ultra suede waistband. The skirt is cut from the same pattern as the wide, wide gathered skirts so even though it is pleated, there is plenty of fabric. Made from my own original patterns, skirts are atleast 45 inches wide and approximately 9 inches long. Most skirts feature an ultra suede waistband. Skirts open completely in the back and have a velcro closing. Deep hems guarantee additional body and good wear. This skirt will be durable as well as beautiful.
