I wanted to try this pattern and find out, if the shape suits me. I’m satisfied, also I don’t have a wesp-waist. I really liked the fabric and thought I would be good for the Marie pattern. It is like linen and unfortunately crinkles easy. And I added black lace! You can grade up everything with some lace :D
By the way: I’m wearing my JJ blouse, which I finally repaired (I had to take out the whole back-part!) – only for those who were asking what I’m doing the whole holidays ;)
Edit: I added some pics with the skirt after ironing ;)
cotton, flow like linen
Burda for the great pattern. I’m thinking about selling this skirt – it is, allowed, isnt it?
