Description

Here you see the backside of my skirt. The front side is similar. The fabric’s color is darker than on the photo. The sun shone so bright and changed the color.
2003 I saw a wonderful skirt in “Burda quick and easy” for fall and winter and I wanted to sew it at once. I found a corduroy fabric and wanted to sew. I wanted it until this summer!
Now I made it. The pieces were cut and I realized, that I needed a bigger size meanwhile! The skirt has an A-form, so I could cut a little on the top-part and I would be able to put my tummy and my backside into it.
My corduroy fabric was elastic in every direction, so I used ironing-adhesive seam-tape to make the seams strong enough to sew. The pieces are different in their straight grain.
The rest was easy to do. On the left side is a short Zipper and I added a waistband. The original pattern has no waistband

Material Notes

Small ribbed Corduroy fabric, non elastic!
A short zipper.
Ironing-adhesive waistband-tape (Vlieseline)

    This looks great, love the way you have used the corduroy, and all your changes obviously worked.
