Description

I used the top panels from this pattern and drafted the bottom panels myself. I basically draw a straight skirt starting with the Burda panels as the top of my skirt, cut them at the diagonal lines and then I slashed and spread the bottom panels making them as wide as my fabric was.

I’ve recently re-stumbled upon one of Susan Khalje’s videos for Threads magazine where she is talking/showing techniques for building waistbands. I decided to give the 4 layers+ ribbon waistband a try – my fabric was light enough to handle this kind of treatment.

    Will get it posted this week. Blouse it does not press too well as ruffles don’t behave-they curl up around the button placket. July 10-now posted the blouse in an outdoor photo. http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/peacock-print-silk-blouse

    I really like how the peacock print turned out in your skirt! I have a very similar print in silk used for a top completed last month.

    All eyes will be on you! :)
