Description

Last year I wanted to make an orange/red skirt like the one I saw in the “Marni” spring collection. So I went to the shop and got myself some orange fabric. But there never was time to make the pattern,… and the fabric stayed in the cupboard.

I’m happy I didn’t make the skirt back then. When I saw this pattern in burdastyle this spring I knew it was perfect for this orange fabric. In fact it was better than the pattern I had in mind before. This had gathers in the back, and might not be so flattering. I had to scale the pattern to a size 46, but without further alterations the fit was good. I have plans to make the skirt in a printed fabric.

I was a bit frightened to make the skirt as it looks rather difficult, but it wasn’t difficult at all.
As the fabric has some lycra it feels comfortable to wear.

Poplin with lycra, invisible zipper, button, interfacing for waistband

      Thank you very much:-) I liked the pattern with the pleats on the hip too, but didn’t have enough fabric.
