It is all in the stars - Burda Style 11/2008 panel skirt

Aylesbury, Unite...






It is the second time I am using this pattern I found i an older Burda Style magazines (November 2008). It is an absolute classic, comfortable and flattering, ideal for a quick project that looks laborious and sophisticated nevertheless.

I bought the fabric on a Friday afternoon, and by Friday night the skirt was ready finished. I shortened the skirt by about 6 cms and added a hand crocheted detail to the hem.

The skirt is made of eight symmetrical panels and features a hem flounce. I omitted the side zip, as the jersey is very giving. I initially planned to crochet a more ample hem, however I changed my mind later and kept it simple due to the embossed texture.

Fabric: jersey from John Lewis

Photographed with M&S mustard wool pullover, cashmere blend tights (John Lewis), M&S leather ankle boots (last season), Modalu Pippa bag and Wallis throw. Watch by Orla Keily

      I agree, some of the older patterns are real gems. I find the new ones a bit repetitive. How many more new patterns can you invent?!?!?
