Flippy skirts for Felicity: #108burda02/2020

Simple pattern. Cute skirt. Gorgeous daughter. Stash fabrics. These are some of my favourite things.

This is Burda 02/2020 #108. In size 40 waist and size 42 hips.

The first version was in a poly cotton tartan cotton for spotlight. Horrid fabric to sew – the weave is too loose. It turned out well as a garment. I credit lovely bemsilk lining for that!

The second version is in delightful Italian cotton shirting purchased a hundred years ago for a great little shop in Turin. Not actually a hundred years ago but in our COVID-19 world it feels like this.

A vintage button adds to its charm. Yes it probably is sewn on upside down.

I didn’t line this version but it may have hung better if I had.

These pictures were shot in my new sewing space. l love having a large dedicated sewing space! Even if is a work in progress – there is still a lot of stuff in random spots and the pictures need hanging.

Just look at the light!

In conclusion. Great skirt pattern. The goldilocks of flounce. Highly recommended.

  1. Don’t you love a good easy skirt pattern? Wish I had my own set up; would get a lot more sewing done! I’m very envious. I just have to wait 10 years for the kids to move out. :o)

  2. like the fun, red tartan skirt on Felicity. Funny I made my daughter almost the same skirt, but used an older BurdaStyle pencil skirt and drafted a flounce. I’m surprised I’ve done more sewing in 2020 and for her than I have in a while. She has new shorts, skirts, trousers… Since she’ll be in uni in 2021, it was good timimg
