Today's inspiration is from Elie Tahara:

Here's the Rachelle Printed Skirt. This skirt is made from a floral print, cotton/spandex stretch sateen. It has a natural waistband, side slash pockets, and a box pleat a-line silhouette. Dry clean only. Price tag: $298.00.

I wonder how many skirts could be made from various floral printed sateen for that price. Anyone want to guess?

Here's some alternatives for the pattern:

Let's start with the Study Hall Skirt pattern by Anna Maria.  This skirt has four box pleats - two in the front and two in the back.  This silhouette is very close the inspiration picture.

Next, we have the Proper Attire Skirt pattern by Anna Maria. The silhouette is a little bit different from the inspiration picture but you still get the pleats if you choose.

Happy Stitching!
