This skirt was based on my 1940s style dress which ended up featured here on Burda Style. I pretty much folded up my original pattern at the waist and made a skirt. Then I applied my reversible esthetic to it fitting with the theme of my etsy shop. Since this was an experiment to see if making this reversible would work I used some of my “impulse buy” fabric and leftover pieces from other projects.

A note on “dificulty”: I never know what to put. I know there are many talented seamstresses on here that would look at this and say “That’s not intermediate, that’s novice!” and there might be some that think it looks rather complicated. I rate for me not others. I base this on my own experience. It’s all very subjective and in the end these ratings mean nothing.
