Do you have that odd piece of clothing that doesn't fit your needs anymore..... that maybe hangs isolated in the closet, never to see the light of day? This skirt began as one of those not-so-loved-anymore garments..... but not now! This cutie is already much loved and will be worn.... lots!!
Burda 02/2017 #117 Skirt pattern here, here and here it made me think of the elastic-waist NewLook 6192 skirt I made back in Fall 2016, fully lined with in-seam pockets, and though it was worn from time to time, it always felt a little 'clunky' so it's been hanging in my studio..... taking up valuable real estate on the rack, just waiting for the right project to come along to transform it into something useful. My weight is down more than 15 pounds from 2016 and the elastic waist felt bulky and all bunched up, particularly in the back where my back is narrow anyway..... so a re-fashion into this cute Burda skirt seemed like a good plan. But oh my goodness, I had no idea how much (extra!) work a re-fashion could be!
Catia, The Petite Cat's blog post about her cute version of this skirt, was most helpful in constructing my skirt. I followed along with her photographs and that was nice to have a sort of visual help in making a Burda pattern.
Burda top. Our weather has been up, down and all around lately with today being rainy and gray outside, thus trying an indoor shot.

Blank Slate Pattern/Melly Sews Women's V-neck Tshirt free pattern because I desperately need new workout shirts and this is the type I like to wear. It's all done but the neckband.
