skirt designed by Stephan Schneider for Burda (belgium version) in 2005.
skirt that is closed on the back with button and made off 4 different bent pieces.
The original is supposed to be longer but with that, I look like a nun. because it’s made out off wool, it’s rather stiff so if you make it longer it will porbably fall more nice. Now it’s standing a bit away from the body. I had to make an alteration for a little swayback, my first but it worked out well. The bent pattern form gave no problem with sewing.
Although made of the same pattern, the lining was too small. I could fix that with taking out the seams.
fabric: wool with stripes
