Very striking skirt. Looks like lots of fun to wear and the hidden pocket, how practical!

Thanks, all, for your positive comments. HeathersMom, you should be able to pick up a current issue of this magazine at a newsstand that specializes in German or international publications. If it's this particular skirt you itch for, you can easily draft one from a well fitting straight skirt pattern. As a math major, you should be able to work out the proportions of the upper skirt and flounce, as well as the width of the front panel, from the line drawing. The flap is a single layer turned under 1/4" and then 3/8" (5/8" total) and topstitched. I highly recommend getting a subscription (US). Canadians, a subscription (CDN) is $100/year (12 issues)

Isn't that a clever and striking skirt! Bet it looks great on you! PLEASE share some pics of you wearing it in action! By the way, is there an over the counter or from the filing cabinet version of this BURDA? I don't have a magazine subsciption just yet!

What a striking skirt. The front bib with button closure on each side allows for a very clean, slimming line giving you the illusion of length. Moving the side zip to the (hidden) front is ideal and makes sense. The flounce gives the skirt an essence of femininity well suited to your fabric choice. Lovely, well done.

What an ingenious idea with the front zipper, I really dislike side zippers because it makes tweaking the fit impossible without taking out the zip. Very cute skirt!!! Great review....If I make the skirt I am going to refer back to your review!

Brilliant!!!! I love everything you sew and this is no exception. I'm moving to Hong Kong this month and travelling to Kuala Lumpur en route, I got to make this skirt as you suggested! Very very clever. Bravo!

This turned out really cute. I love how BWOF always has little surprise details. I would have never thought to make this skirt out of khaki, but it looks great!
