How on earth do you make school girl skirts!?! ;-;!

I would suggest not making them, but finding a school uniform store. Every city has one! I also have a website that I found a britney spears type school uniform and the skirt on it is actually not too shabby!

Er, well, if you actually want to make one, you can always get a good pleated skirt pattern from a cheerleader costume. Those are easy patterns to find, since all the big brands (Simplicity & Butterick, etc) make them, I think. They work very well!

and just extend the skirt length!

Something that you can also get a pleated skirt pattern from is sports stores. Tennis skirts are pleated more often than not. You would of course have to lengthen the material for the real school girl skirt, but if you wanna go not-so-inocent like (muahahah!) keep it short. But I believe the easist way to get a skirt of your liking was to buy one like Aeris said. It is more likely to turn out how you like it!

If you make it, stiching right on the crease of the pleat also helps it to stay pleated! ^^ Their is also a lot of new stuff at the fabric stores for pleated skirts~~~ : )

The pleated skirt patterns are way easy, it took me maybe an hour or two. The thing is, the cheerleader skirts tend to stand out to the side, so you should use a soft fabric if you don't want that effect (Am I making -any- sense??)
