|Pattern Description: |
Skirt with high-waist and side-back vent.
I sewed size 46. I'm a US 14, UK 14/16, EUR 44/46
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I didn't follow them because Burda are not to be understood, especially not in German.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I was attracted to the style lines of the skirt. However, one thing that is weird is that the curved portion is only on one half of the back. In my version, I used trim to make it seem like there was another seam, so it looked the same on both sides
Heavy weight cotton jacquard
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I extended the length and also made the vent lower, because otherwise it would have flapped open right up to the start of my behind.
I did have to smooth out the curve for the hips, since I'm quite a rectangle with not many curves.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I will sew this again for sure, it's a cute pattern. I would fix the part about the one back side not having the curved pattern piece though.
Easy skirt, done in one evening!
