This sunburst pleated trumpet skirt can be made with several custom options:
- The pleated portion can be made with a minimum of 2 sunburst panels (half circles) up to 10 panels depending on the type of fabric you choose, the understructure of the garment and the amount of volume you want to create.
- In addition the length of the pleated panels can be even around the hem or they can be slightly longer at the center back seam like in the image above.
- Another point to note regarding this style is the back of the skirt in the photo implies a soft fabric by the way it lays on the floor. If you choose a stiffer fabric like organza or taffeta your dress will not drape like the photo.
Since the pleating for this style starts at the knee extreme lengths are not necessary. In most instances our standard sunburst length should be sufficient which is a total radius of 44 inches/ 120 cm from the center of the circle.
