Catholic School Girl Skirt

This lovely wool challis pleated skirt is my second make from Simplicity 9070 circa 1970.

My mother’s friend saw it and exclaimed, “That is a perfect pleated skirt. And I went to Catholic school, so I know what I’m talking about!”

To see some more photos you can stop by my blog. Thanks and happy vintage sewing!

  • It’s not a proper Catholic school girl skirt if it doesn’t touch the floor when you kneel down ;-)

      • Any Catholic school girl worth her salt knows that you go roll the waistband in the restroom to make your skirt shorter ;)

  • Minus the buttons, that is the very skirt I wore to MY Catholic high school (in the 1990s, not the 1970s)!
