Here is my latest finished project, this time Burdastyle’s pattern Kasia skirt made up in our Japanese cotton Imazu Spotted Night. The pattern is fabulous and quick to sew – with very clear instructions. I’ve made this up for a friends daughter who’s been wanting a high waisted skirt. I made no alterations to the pattern except cutting out the 38 for the bottom half of the pattern and the 36 for the top, as the pattern measures very snug at the hip.
I really love the button and gathered yoke detailing on this skirt. The only decision now is long or short for the length…what do you think?
1.5mts of Imazu Spotted Night, 23cm nylon zipper, 6 × 23mm white buttons
