This is actually the first thing I´ve ever sewed. I think it turned out quite well even though the next time I would try to match the checks on the skirt and the waistband. It was really scarry to do the buttonholes because I was afraid I would ruin the skirt. But actually it was much more easier than I expected it to be. Btw there are for buttons, two on every side even if the pictures just show two of them…

But there´s still one thing, which is bothering me: when I´m wearing the skirt with tights, it is riding up my legs. Any suggestions? What about a slippery lining? Could that help?

Material Notes

Some kind of wool mix, which was fraying a lot when I did the buttonholes.





Me and Burda for the pattern.

    Ein tolles erstes Werk! :-) Ist echt schön geworde, Dein Rock – mir gefallen die Rundungen unten besonders gut. Ich hab auch so einen Wollrock der krabbelt mir immer die Beine hoch – da kann man entweder nur ganz glatte Strumpfhosen anziehen oder wirklich füttern, bzw. ich hab mir einfach einen fertigen Unterrock gekauft, den ich jetzt auch unter anderen Röcken tragen kann, vielleicht ginge das bei Dir auch? Ist auf jeden Fall die einfachste Lösung :-) Grüße, Luzie
