We have been invited to a wedding and I though I will sew a new outfit for the event. I bought this coral cotton satin fabric with colorful flowers on them.At first I was going to make a dress, but then I thought the vibrant coral color might be a bit too much. So instead I went for a pencil skirt, loose blouse outfit.

I loved this pencil skirt pattern at the first sight when I opened up the magazine! I was curious of the shaping and the structure due to the panels, so I gave it a go! The only modification I had to make is to take in 2 cm in the back center seam, see on the picture. It seems I will always have to do that with bottom patterns from Burda. Other than that size 36 seems a good fit!

Next time I would emphasize the lines wit pipings, but otherwise I love the result!! It is comfortable to wear and the fabric feels wonderful!

Now, I just need to find a nice blouse to go with it, maybe sew one… ;-)
