This is my version of the Kasia – which has to be my favorite BurdaStyle pattern to date. It’s amazing, flattering, perfect pencil shape, and really comfortable (and practical! with the pockets in the front).
Having said that, I think I made a mistake somewhere (involving the waistband) as my waistband seems to be half the width of everyone else’s! hehe…. Oops! Still good!
**Apologies for the repeat posting, for some reason my first one didn’t have photos showing up! :(
I used a houndstooth cottony-woolly material I bought at Spotlight, and normal satin lining. The houndstooth material was quite thin, but the various layers of lining and extra material in the pouch give it extra sturdiness.
