Description

This is my second skirt from pattern 122 from Burda mag 12/2009 . I’ve changed the pattern slightly so that the flounce stops at the side seam. I made it in a fairly lightweight cord. Overall I’m pretty happy with it, I really like the look of the welt pockets but am feeling tempted to stitch them shut as they gape a bit, also the top stitching wasn’t working out for me as the texture of the cord tends to leave it looking less smooth than usual. My first version in denim was top stitched beautifully but had the full flounce which stuck out at a very jaunty angle from the sides! However despite my very finest sewing I stupidly didn’t measure up properly, it was about 2inches on the hip too small so I gifted it to a friend.
I also used Sandra Betzina’s flat fly video – it’s great :)

    Thank you so much for your kind words. After wearing this skirt quite a bit now Im quite enjoying my pockets, they don’t sit quite right and they still gape but they are very cosy and practical so I’d put them in if I made another.
