Another Jersey Pencil Skirt
Added Jul 9, 2014
Funny enough I am tempted to sew jersey skirts over and over again. I just love them. They are comfy and still have the impression of femininity.
That is burdastyle 5/2012, no.113C.
I did some waist adjustments directly at the pattern. Having sewn the side seams I realized that the waist was still way too wide. So I had to narrow it down some more. That seemed strange, the waist must be something around a 34 now – the hips are still the usual 42 I have. I think that was due to the very stretchable fabric I used and will probably work out differently with another fabric.
The sewing was not difficult, but it took more time than I expected – thanks to all of these pleats. In the beginning I was confused about how sewing them together and ironing them. Burdastyle suggests to iron them up, but I had the impression that that would have brought another result on the fall of the pleats compared to the pictures. I decided to iron them down. I also made it a bit shorter, it would have been too long for my Impression and not very flattering on me.
I also used my serger for the first time – uh, I have true and professional looking finishing inside my garment, wow!
I am happy with the outcome, as I said I love Jersey skirt and one more is nothing bad ;-)
