Flounce Skirt #105 12-2016

This Flounce skirt style #105 from Burdastyle magazine 12/2106 really caught my eye. Perfect for the cool wintery weather here at the moment.

The ruffle is super cute especially in plaid. Lucky for me, I had some pink/black combo plaid in my stash and some hot pink lining (and pink hair) so I decided to give it a go. I made a few rookie errors. I matched the plaid horizontally but didn’t pay much attention to the vertical lines. Because the front has two pieces, I should have matched the CF seam line. Also, I put my front pattern pieces face up on the wrong side of the fabric which meant my ruffle was the opposite to the pic in the magazine which really doesn’t matter so I left it that way rather than wasting the fabric already cut. I will make this skirt again so I’ll keep all of this in mind.

I have to say, the pattern is a pretty easy make but the instructions are near impossible to follow when you get to the lining steps. I am a seasoned sewer and figured it out pretty easily without the instructions but it is unfortunate as I’m sure more sewers would make these patterns if the instructions were more clear.

I have more pics and details with a few tips and tricks on using Burdastyle patterns up on my blog.
