blue baloon skirt

Barcelona, Spain






I made this skirt (my second one!) following a pattern from this summer’s burda-style magazine in Spain (I don’t know if they are the same everywhere, here it was skirt 112B).

it’s supposed to be made with silk, but I don’t think I’m able to work with silk yet, so it’s a cotton fabric.

ps: I’m not 100% sure (I’ve got bad memory) but I think the pattern is from Burdastyle magazine september 2010

    this is brilliant skirt – next time try something like crepe. Silk is a hard one for beginners, but there are so many softer fabrics that are easy enough to work with and this kind of skirt would look amazing in a softer material. If you are not sure- go to the store and feel the fabric- if it is too slippery when rubbed against itself- leave it, but if it is just nice and soft- why not? Go for it and trust yourself!

    the pattern is from Burda 9/2010 pattern 112, can be made with an underlining skirt or on its own. Excellent pattern: here is a link to a Russian Burda Style model parade by some russian seamstresses

    I guess it’s from 9/2010 concerning the german burdastyle magazine website. And I think this version looks so much better than the original in the magazin. Great work antraxdesigns!

      you are just right! Lovely skirt- but for fuller hips, needs pattern adjusting- maybe reduce the number of pleats. Love it!

      Este patrón viene en la revista burda mensual del mes de Septiembre 2010. Todas las versiones en sus diferentes idiomas traen exactamente los mismos patrones

    Nice skirt. I think it may fit better to the category of Draped mock wrap skirt, than baloon skirt, what say???

    I love the draped skirts, never get tired of making them for my 4yr old DD
