This skirt is inspired by skirt 113 in Burda 04/2014. I didn’t really like the photograph in the magazine, but liked the idea of a high waisted skirt. I planned to create the pockets in contrasting fabric, but being new to sewing, I wasn’t quite sure how to do this, so i decided to leave them out altogether in this version. I might have another go at some point.
I added lining in the skirt, below the waist band because the fabric wasn’t very smooth and might ‘stick’ to my tights. I choose a bright red lining.
