After having some leftovers from the last pair of pants we made, my buddys wife wanted to have the skirt from burdastyle magazine 09/2010 #116 . It’s so nice to only need less than a meter for a size 42. While sewing we noticed that it’s important, to have a consistent seam allowance, otherwise you end up with a longer front part than back part – which happened to us. We balanced that through a shorter seam allowance at the waistline where the lining was attached. Due to that mistake the seam zipper ended up a bit below the waistline, but besides that, it turned out very well. I was pleasantly surprised, as was my buddy and his wife.
It is so ungrateful to try to photograph fabric in grey, especially in charcoal grey, so forgive me, if the defines contours of the skirt aren’t as good visible, as I liked them to be.
