Tweed and Lace Kasia

Added Feb 29, 2016

This is my first project after “long time no sew”.

The Kasia skirt is a hit, and I totally understand why: pleasant to sew, with the yokes that allow many variations, easy to match with many clothes and shoes, and it makes a very flattering figure.

My advice: make the waist yokes contrast as well, not just only the hip yokes. I think it’s prettier and it makes a thinner waist.

    I like your interpretation of this pattern a lot! I was wondering if you did not do the gathering on the pockets? It is not evident on the picture.

      Thank you ! Sorry I just noticed your message. Too much notifications on BurdaStyle :/ I did the gathering, as indicated, but it’s rather light and with the lace, it’s quite discreet.

      Thanks! It’s quite versatile actually, with heels and a blouse it can be very “ladylike” but I could also wear it with a more casual top and my Doc Martens – I tried and liked the result :)

    Perfection! I remember this pattern from when I first joined Burdastyle, many moons ago. Don’t know why I never made it, but your version inspires me to go and try :)

      Thanks! The same for me. I downloaded this pattern years ago. It was still free :)
      A few weeks ago, I had these fabrics in my hand, decided to make a skirt out of them and suddenly, here it was, very obvious: Kasia :)
      Sometimes patterns grow on us slowly! I hope you’ll try it and enjoy it as I did.
