Description

About a month ago, I had a short break in my schedule and was finally able to work with some of the fabric I bought in Minnesota. Having no exact project in mind at the time, I decided to browse Burda for some skirt patterns. I wanted something that could handle a heavier fabric, was no too short and not too long. I still wanted something I could wear through Wisconsin cold winters-paired with cute tights or leggings, of course!

The A-Plus A Line had those characteristics, plus, it was free! I printed it out, cut into my tweed and had a beautiful skirt a few hours later. I chose to line the skirt with a butterscotch colored lining. I think it’s fun to have accents on the interior as well!

The result was scholarly, with the plaid and pleats. I wish I had a bike with a basket to put these books in and ride around. However, it would have to be about twenty degrees warmer to not freeze this time of year!
