Burda 02/2011 107 high waisted pencil skirt: PLAID

My first lined garment, pattern alteration, patterned fabric matching…. A lot of firsts. I might have to re-tack the lining to the zipper at some point, but it looks good!

Material Notes

Possibly wool?

    Hi there. Love this pattern. :) Can’t seem to get to your blog, however. It says the page has been removed, had its name changed or is unavailable. Should I just keep trying?

    I was wondering about your pattern mods: Did you change the width of the hemline at all? Yours looks slightly less tight around the knees. Thanks so much! :)

      I had to take down my website, so it’s not there. I should probably update that field in my profile.
      As for the hemline, I didn’t change the width per se, but I did add that kick pleat in the back, which might have “relaxed” the bottom of the skirt hence making it less tight?
