Made this 40s Style Wool Skirt from the current BurdaStyle Magazine (01/2011 – yes, I was pretty fast this time!). I loved the pattern in the moment I saw it, but I am not quite sure if it really fits me – guess it makes my hips look even worse than they already are :-x
The pattern was really easy and fast to sew. I lengthened it because I am pretty tall, but am not sure if it was a bit too much – what do you think?
Dark grey pure new wool for 12 Euro per meter – a great offer at my favorite fabric outlet store :-)
