Description

I do not like too wide skirts and this was perfect for me. It has two pleats in front and therefore it’s very comfortable to wear. I have used black linen and and a bit of the heavy woven cotton for the print fabric. It’s based on pattern #113 Burda 07/2008. So together with the jacket I think it’s a nice outfit and I love it! :)

Material Notes

Linen and heavy woven print fabric.

    Wonderful outfit, the way you combined the skirt and the jacket in a suit is just perfect. I always liked this suit and, in fact, bought that issue because of it. I’m so glad to see the ready items on a real person, your stunning look makes me sure that it’s worth making and wearing:-))
