It’s such a simple pattern, but I really like the 70’s vibe of the style, so when I found a dark blue wool remnant at Fabricana, I knew I was going to make myself a version.
Pattern is 116B from September 2012. Burda tagged it as “easy” and it definitely is, starting with the fact that it only has two pattern pieces (4 pieces to cut with the lining), front and back, both cut on the fold. There are 2 darts in the back, two in the front and an inverted pleat at CF, which is the main design detail. Simple but classic.
This skirt came together really fast (3 hours tops including cutting), and I really love it!
