I used my old favorite pattern Burda 8344 for these. I have adpated this pattern so it fits me perfectly now so although its boring i do use it alot.These two materiala i fell in love with totally and i wanted a light summer skirt to wear on my hols in barcelona. I managed to make them out of 1.5m with enough left over so that was good. Worked great, however, i have to say it does need a lining. The fabric is too thin to hold its shape and it keeps riding up sort of like when you get static. So i am now going to have to go back and reline both of them, shame but i will wear them alot so its worth the effort.
