This is my burda summer sewing challenge. It’s based on burda’s “stretch pencil skirt” pattern, but I added gathering to the darts. The fabric is a slightly stretchy twill.
More details are on my blog
I loved how this pattern came together. It’s perfect for summer.
The darts were hand gathered and an invisible zipper was hand basted. Waistband facing was hand stitched.
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
