A pleated mini skirt is such a classic style with a bit of a retro vibe. I think it's important to make sure the pleats aren't too wide in order to avoid looking larger than you really are.

I love this so much. Midi skirts are kind of universally flattering and they always look really chic. I would love to make mine with an exposed zipper in the back, but I feel like that would not work with the pleats. Any ideas?
