My go-to purple skirt needed replacing. I love purple. Something had to be done…
It’s a faux wrap skirt, with an inbuilt flounce
Its fauxness is exposed when its windy.
But it can be patted back in place
Pattern: BurdaStyle 08-2007-113. Yes an oldie but a goodie.
Size: 38-46, I made a 42
Fabric: Synthetic stretch suede from my local bricks and mortar store, Ferrier Fabrics. The back is shiny.
Changes I made: 3 cm added in length and a 1cm sway back adjustment to the back yoke.
This style is supposed to sit at the waist but the ‘waist’ sits just below my belly button (too cold still to show that!):
Now I’m imagining another version with the wrap lined to the edge with a contrasting fabric, perhaps even some colour blocking?
I know, I know, my drawing skills could do with some work…
