BurdaStyle #118 05/2012 Skirt

We have a heat wave in the Netherlands. I’me a jeans wearing person and have only one Summer dress and no skirts in the closet.

So I started sewing skirts. The first one was a refashion. And who can believe it? It was out of a dress I made more ten years ago for our youngest daughter that she didn’t’t wore anymore.


Well this skirt let to two more skirts. These three skirts were made without a pattern.


And then came this BurdaStyle magazine. I found some beautiful soft light weighted chambray in a jeans colour, added pleats to back and belt loops, made an exposed zipper in the back and after four evenings of sewing my skirt was ready to face the daylight.
