I made a Marie skirt. pattern by Burda. I needed something flattering for my protruding tummy and smart to wear to the office. This pattern seems to have it all!
I made it in size 42, however, if you have an hourglass figure like me and want to wear it on your waist and not the hips, I need to make it in a smaller size.
The instructions for the interfacing was ridiculous. I left it out. Also, I’d like to sew a bigger waistband next time. Overall, a great project to start with!
