Dayton, Ohio, Un...
Bought the pattern from the German Burdastyle page before it got here, bought the fabric in Summer and just now got around to making this skirt.
I hope the godet allows me to ride my bicycle in this skirt, because I love pencil skirts and I love riding my bike everywhere and the two just don’t mix :)
Too bad I don’t have any pictures wearing it, but the hubby fell asleep so that’s not happening.
I am just glad I figured out how to use a serger in time to finish the seams – BEAUTIFUL! (just ask me)
And the invisible zipper worked as well – cheers all around!
UPDATE: Just rode my bike to work in this skirt and it works great.
