So, do you know that feeling when you realize that you have made 5 skirts and 3 tops out of the same patterns over and over again? YES, that’s me! I really love Burda’s ruched skirt pattern and simple, draft -it-yourself sweater pattern, also from Burda. This is not the first time I sewed both of these patterns, here is another ruched skirt I made in grey-white combination and an animal print sweater. I love the outcome and if I decide to make couple of more skirts or sweaters, oh well, so be it! 🙂 Read pattern description and material notes below. Tell me, do you have a stack of favorite patterns?

Let’s talk abut cakes now! When I say “cake” my mind screams: “sugar, spice and everything nice!” and “PINK”. Since I am not a fan of pink, and I often make sure that everyone knows about it, it is often hard to break through your own shell of stereotypes. I guess my biggest thins is that I associate pink with youth and since I look awfully young for my 23, I believe dressing in pink makes it even worse. BUT, there always should be the first time and room for experiments. This month, the month of ” Let the sew cake” challenge is a fist time for me. I already tried myself with hot pink color over here, making a hot pink top and white chiffon skirt. Being honest – I almost felt amazing wearing pink (it takes time to get used to it).
And, Happy Birthday TMS! 🙂

So, here we go:
Fabric: for the sweater – thin knit or jersey, for the skirt – thick jersey and white chiffon, elasticated band
Pattern: skirt pattern 121 from Burda’s issue 8/2011. Of course it’s Burda’s pattern! I fell in love with pretty much every single detail of this skirt, on the picture original skirt was made all in white but it seemed to be like an overload of white… So, I was lucky to find this nice, thick “shrimp” pink knit jersey at remnant sales in Jo Ann’s and then the white ruched insert is all chiffon. This pattern really does not take too many of materials. I omitted the zipper since it is jersey and added wider band at the top where I inserted elasticated band.
