Notice something different? That’s right, this is not a part of the Spring Collection.

The pleated pocket skirt is actually part of a pair of skirts I made for the Spring Fling Event going on right now at Whatever Dee Dee Wants.

I adore both versions, and was so excited using some of my coveted Sarah Jane Children at Play fabric to make them :). They are just perfect for Spring!

If your kids are anything like mine, pockets are a huge bonus in any clothing they wear. Some place to put all of their teeny tiny little toys they are always accumulating (or rocks, or flowers, or old gum).

They just love it!

So I really wanted to make them both a skirt that would have huge pockets to accommodate all of their child-like needs.

To make the Pleated Pocket Skirt, you will need about 1/2 yard fabric.

Simply…

Piping is of course optional

I did do my waistband slightly different than the tutorial suggests, having my elastic start around the sides of the pleats – rather than the entire waistband. But I thought for ease factor, this would suit.

But for those of you who know how to do this technique, pulling the elastic around and sewing down the sides at your desired ending points – it is a nice touch.

And there you have it, a super cute pleated pocket skirt for your little one.
