Summer Skirt for my Niece

Added Jul 16, 2014

I found this pattern in Burda 05/2004, and had this lovely cotton twill in my stash. It is an easy pattern with zipper on the left side. I didn’t use lining since the fabric isn’t transparent and I think it’s perfect for summer :)

    This is my very favourite Burda skirt pattern. I have made it at least 6 times with different types of fabric and it always works. I hope your niece will love it too.

      That’s nice to hear! I probably should try making it in a lighter fabric as well :-)

    Lovely skirt! I like the print – so summery and light. You did several time a fantastic job with browsing your old burda magazines and finding some treasuries! That’s excellent :D. My first burda is back from think 2009 (omg am I already that old? Time flew…). Your niece will be super happy with this skirt!

      Thanks a lot for your lovely words! I’m having fun looking for something special I wanna make from my old Burda’s.. Of course it’s nice with new once as well :-)
