My newest wardrobe addition is this lovely light summer skirt – and I actually made and finished it thanks to the Sommer-Skirt Sew-Along on the MeMadeMittwoch blog. The fabric came from a friend and was actually intended for costumes for my son’s marionettes. But this piece of fabric was so big that it was enough for a skirt for Mama AND a dress for the marionette princess.
There is not much to be said about this skirt. I used the same Burda download pattern I have used previously (other realizations are here, here and here). Again, I sink-stitched the waistband using the special sewing foot and stitched the hem (once turned over) with an almost invisible seam using the same sewing foot. I did try to match the pattern at the back seam and put quite a bit of effort into cutting out the pieces. But when I put in the zipper I forgot about it and then I didn’t want to undo everything again. However, I feel that pattern is pretty forgiving – and Patrick is not judging. Also, the inside of the pockets, which I did in an other fabric, peeks out a bit. But the skirt wears nicely – and I love it!
Pattern: Burda style 2 / 2010 download-pattern (BM1002 104). I made model B, but I adjusted the length.
Fabric: gifted cotton print
Will I do it again? I wonder when I will get sick of this sewing pattern. Anyhow, the next version is already sitting on my sewing table.
