Batman, not The Batman

Batman Pleated Skirt

Mmmm....crisp pleats. Tasty, tasty pleats.

The ink on the selvage edge was pretty blobby and hard to read, but it didn't look like "DC Comics" or "Bob Kane" were mentioned anywhere. Combined with the odd stiffness and strange printing (there were three repeated rows in odd sizing), it wouldn't be unreasonable to suspect this is a knock-off. Not that I care! I think it looks great. I love the graident of orange to yellow in the background, the city silhouette...hell, all of it! The fabric was quite stiff from the amount of printing on it, which lended well to a crisp pleated tennis skirt-esque garment. Construction wasn't too challenging, the print was easy to match up. I really enjoy doing pleats, it's time-consuming, but the results are very rewarding.

Come on, it's a Batman skirt. You KNOW it's cool.
