Description

This is my first go with the jenny skirt pattern. It came out pretty good, but could be a lot nicer if the fabric had been better. I also made the mistake of not cutting the interface on the bias, and it’s caused the belt of the skirt to shrink quite a bit. Anyhow, I like the shade of the skirt (which actually is not as pinki as it shows in the pics), and it’s very nice when worn with a white shirt tucked in.
The top is from Burda magazine 07/2011 (Mod. 113, here on burdastyle.com appears as “07/2011 Top with rose brooch”), which is the first pattern I tried to trace from the magazine, and was’t as difficult as I thought. Again, I think the top would look better with a more fluid fabric, like silk.

Material Notes

The skirt is made out of 100% cotton fabric, which wasn’t that wise of a decision for a skirt that slim, because it wrinkles a lot.
The top is made of cotton shirting fabric, with a bit of elastic in it, and for the sleeves I used synthetic organza with little white polka dots.
