Inspired by the Sewing Bee, I wanted to see if I could put together a simple A-line skirt in an hour and 15 minutes. It was harder than I had expected and I failed desperately: it took me a little over 3 hours! I take my hat of to the contestants!
I used a Burda Young pattern for a short skirt – Burda8237 – and lengthened it. Side zipper, 2 darts in the back and no waistband.
