Houndstooth skirt

Added Dec 30, 2010

I made this skirt using a pattern from Burda 3/2009. I used a jersey fabric. The zipper in the side caused me some problems, it´s a bit too stiff and makes a little “bump”. But I´m still happy with how it turned out. I might do one more skirt in some other fabric.

    Classic design, beautiful skirt. Amazing that it’s a jersey fabric. I also like the way you took your time to match the patterns at the seams. Great job!

    I just finished a houndstooth pencil skirt myself! What are you planning on wearing it with, aside from solid black? I’m still trying to figure that out. Like the pockets on your version!

      Your skirt looks really good!
      I was thinking of trying it with a black and white striped polo neck I have. But I don´t know, maybe it will just look crazy… =)
