Another quick project before I dig in my big spring coat project. It has been some time I have sewn a skirt, so here we go, one little for spring.
I found a gorgeous brown wool fabric with little orange threads in it (on most of the pictures the colour is more brown-grey; in reality it is a nice warm brown), it is supposed to be suit wool, but after ironing it, I suspect there is something else blended in. Anyhow, I still have some more 3 meters of it so will probably try to make a whole suit from it.
I have chosen Burda 104-02/2010 which was even available in size 34. I made my muslin and it fitted. I would say no big surprise, the bottom pieces are rather easy to fit for me and the skirt has an A-line, but it was very pleasant to concentrate on other things, like the details:
The skirt is lined with light cotton-silk, and finished according to my usual standards.
I am really proud of seam matching, invisible zip and the whole result, so I am pretty sure I will be sewing this pattern again in summer.
