Chicago, Illinoi...






This was my second go with the Inverted Pleat Skirt pattern from the September 2012 issue of Burda, #116B. I made some adjustments to my muslin to get a skirt that sits on the waist rather than on the hips. Blog post here:

    Wow – so THIS is what experienced sewers and designers mean when they talk about the whole perfect marriage of fabric and form . . . it’s a really beautiful skirt, and it looks just so wonderful on you – from fit to construction to colors and style. It looks like you would HAVE be in a good mood the instant you put it on . . . which you should be, because it’s awesome! I would wear it as a “neutral” until it fell off! Not sure I trust my year-old sewing skills with that kind of fabric investment quite yet . . . but I can definitely say I now have a goal!

      Thank you for that very lovely compliment!

      If you like this design, I think you should go for it! It’s a very easy one to sew and doesn’t take a lot of fabric. I only had a yard of this fabric, and I had enough left over to make a clutch purse! I got my fabric for about $15.

      I will say though that velveteen is a little tricky. Things went much easier for me when I switched to a roller foot!
