Comfy Pencilskirt

Berlin, Germany






Simple skirt from the february issue of the Burda magazine. Made it as a test run for the matching dress. The fabric is the leftover from my first v-back dress.Since it is stretchy it is very comfortable and the zipper in the back even allows big steps in this fitted skirt.
It was hard to take a photo of the decorative seams since the colour is dark and the fabric is a bit shiny…just have a look at the pattern :)

Material Notes

Polyester, Metalzipper




Garment Type

    This is great! Really nice job on the fit as well, it is very flattering! The zipper makes for a fun, unique, and unexpected look. :-)

    Once again, only to a US size 12. Once again, someone else can have my money.

      Vielen Dank!
      Ich habe mir gedacht, diese tolle Ausstellung wäre ein schöner Hintergrund für diesen schlichten Rock.

    Nice take on this one. May be a stupid question, but does the zipper stays when you sit and walk ? I’m a bit afraid it would open up. Nice skirt anyway !

      The zipper stays where you put it…it’s a strong metal zipper…you just have to be aware of sneaky boyfriends that like to play tricks on you :)
