Elfka's brown and beige pencil skirt

Added Feb 19, 2012

I was very proud of myself, when I finished it, because Burda model complexity was 2,5 :)
I decided to use contrasting colors for the stripes below waist, original model was in one color. I also made two slits, originally there was only one below zipper, but I prefer everything symmetric usually.
More about it on my blog here: and here:

    I really like your colour combination. I’m planning to do the dress and I think you had a brilliant idea with the two slits!

      I love this cuts and I was thinking about dress too, but I don’t think this strange sleeves would match my full figure. Good luck with your project!

      I don’t like these strange sleeves too. I’m planning to add normal long sleeves.
