Elpida's beautiful version last year, I couldn't wait to make my own. So Burda 11/2017 #106 Skirt pattern was traced last season..... and then I ran out of season before the project could be finished and all was put away, fabric and all. Then a few weeks ago, while working on another completely different project, I remembered this skirt pattern/fabric and realized it'd be the perfect piece to complete that ensemble and within a couple of days this pretty skirt was completed.
All About Fabrics, my only-open-once-a-month local textile outlet center and 2 yards cost @$15 or less. Am finding I'm purchasing more and more of my fabric there, as I (clearly!) like the choices available, the fabric quality is nice and a big plus is that I feel I am supporting a local business.
Burda's model as I write this post, it looks like it fits her this way too. I do like it. It is just a different fit than I thought it would be.
Burda top. Love it when those things happen like that!
Be back in a few days to show you the completed project all put together I've been working on!
8.17.2018 EDITED TO ADD: The original plans for this skirt have been completed and written about at my 'Ode to Frida Kahlo | The Story in Dress' post. So excited about this learning journey!
EDITED TO ADD: This is an August item for the Burda Challenge 2018.
