I just purchased Burda Plus Size Wool Pencil Skirt #136A a downloaded pattern.
I have added my 5/8" seam allowances on the pattern piece (21) CF, (22) SF but I am confused when I get to the pieces (23) CB and 24 SB. The pieces 23 & 24 have one seam which includes the kick pleat extension. Do I also add the 5/8 seam to that seam line including the kick pleat extensions?
My next concern is the instructions ask that the lining be cut 13 cm or 5 1/4 " shorter than the skirt length. This takes the lining up to above the kick pleat extension? Is that correct?
Thank you Burda Sewers :D
yes, this sounds plausible. I will try this and let you know. Thank you!!
