San Jose, Califo...
It is made with Burda magazine 2009/08 skirt 107, which was very easy. I think it might be a little larger than it should be around the hip area, but my material is so thick, I dont know if that might have caused any skewing.
I am starting to get a good hang of the check matching business — even the pocket is matched!
The material was bought from fabric.com a year or two ago. I thought I wanted it for a coat, but I am always afraid that it might look too busy. I think it works great as a skirt material — maybe one with less seams would be better, like a mini skirt! I got those cute dome buttons from ebay, love them!
