This is my first attempt at a BurdaStyle pattern and I couldn’t be happier. I have had several attempts at a high waisted skirt this month and this one makes me feel like a 60s office bombshell. Kudos Jenny, kudos!
I had a bit of trouble with the sizing and once I had made and altered my muslins this worked a treat.
My poor old serger had a needle snap halfway through and my replacements were incorrect so I improvised with some bias binding to finish the seams. It looks like a magical watermelon inside!
I’ll definitely be trying this again- I’m thinking it may be time for suspenders!
further information about the fitting and making process can be found on my blog: www.bimbleandpimble.blogspot.com
