Lay the skirt flat and measure how high you would like your pleats to go
Create markings all the way around the skirt at the desired height with your pencil and ruler
Draw lines from the desired height, straight down to the hemline. This will be your guide to cut
Each line should be an equal distance apart (anywhere from 2"-4" wide)
You can leave the lining in the skirt if it looks cool, or your prefer to not show any leg OR cut the lining out where the pleats are so you can see the leg through the pleats
Watch Orly demonstrate how to make your own DIY pleated skirt in the video below!
Home & Family airs weekdays at 10 am ET/PT on Hallmark Channel.
