Description

Burda Style 3/2010 # 136
I have made this for winter, such that it is in Brisbane. Maybe a trip to Sydney or Melbourne will have this skirt keeping me warm-It is made of wool and it is quite thick and very warm. I wanted a skirt to wear with my new black boots and this was very easy to sew and required no extra fitting. I love projects like that!!!

Material Notes

Wool and Bemsilk lining, invisible zipper.

      Thank-you so much for you lovely comments. I wore it quite a bit during our winter but now that it is over, I will pack it away for the next 9 months.

    I love the fabric! Those polka dots in black and white are very classy and elegant. Great choice of pattern as well. You can never go wrong with a pencil skirt

      I thought I was getting a bit thick around the waist for a pencil skirt, but the darts at the front on the side of the skirt, worked well for the fuller figure. Thanks for your comments Merche, I really appreciate them coming from you.

      Thanks Ralf, it is kind of you to comment. Have you been sewing lately??? I hope you have been keeping well. And I hope you and your husband are feeling better since the loss of your beautiful cat.
