    This is a terrible pattern.

    The instructions are so minimal and confusing that I had to unpick everything many times, and it still looked rubbish!

    You also have to add your own seam allowances (I understand why if this was being published in a magazine this would make sense, but it would take very little effort on their part to provide both options). It’s just laziness on their part.

    I won’t be buying patterns from Burda style again. Waste of money and fabric!

    I just made a dress where I used the skirt part of this pattern. It is totally wonderful. I did not use a jersey, but a fine poly Cotton mix and it turned out very well. There is enough fabric in there, so the stretch part wasnt neccesary.

    The instructions are not very clear. I’m having a hard time figuring it out. I wish there were illustrations instead of all the long run on and confusing sentences. Also I think it weird that I have to add the seam allowance.

    If I’m going to pay for a pattern at least have the directions right, I noticed your missing a few steps.

    I don’t recommend buying this because instructions are not clear and how much fabric is not clear. I expect more from Burda.

    Is there anywhere I can get detailed instructions with illustrations?

      Hi :-) I share Your frustration!!! Yesterday I made the skirt from a regular muslin. Just to get a understanding of how the pattern pieces go together.

      I would start by making the Pleats and securing them.

      When you look at the front pattern piece of the skirt it is really long. That is because it will be folded in half after the Pocket pieces are sewn on.

      It seem to me (if I am correct) that when you sew the side seams of the skirt panels together, that it is a good idea to use the back skirt panel as a referance.

      Put the wrong side of the front skirt panel (side seam) agains the right side of the back panel and sew them together.

      The right skirt panel will now be folded allong the fold line, and Things will start comming together.

      Now both back and front panels will have the seams on the correct side and the right side of the Pleats will be facing out (where you want them :-).

      I am sure that the reason the pattern tells you to make flat felled seams, is because, when the skirt panel is folded and all the draping fabric is in Place, the seams on both sides will be exposed in several Places.

      I plan to work more With this today and wish you the best of Luck.

      Dont let the pattern scare you. It is actually quite fabulous, once you start understanding it….. :-I Just use the markings On the pattern pieces themselves as guides. I think the instructions just confuse me.

    This is lovely. It’s the kind of look I wish I could put together, but it may be too difficult for my beginners skill!

    This is a nice versatile style that does not look like a gunny sack
