I love how the Burda skirt looked, especially the view C. When I decided to use up this old jersey I had for years, this was the only skirt of interest that would fit into my meager 2 yards that would take advantage of the fabric’s lovely drape. (I had wanted to squeeze two tops out of the same 2 yards as well.) I underlined it because my fabric felt a bit too thin for an ultimately tight-fitting skirt. I’m very pleased with the result.
There’s a bit more detail about the process on my blog – including my non-standard size selection and deviations to make it work for me.
Turquoise leopard print polyester-lycra microfiber jersey from B&J Fabrics, NYC.
Skin color lightweight Power Mesh from Tia Knight / Tissu Fabrics for underlining.
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
