Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes it looks pretty much like it's supposed to.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
They were OK – I always struggle with burda fly opening instructions and look elsewhere for that.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
As with many of burda patterns, I dislike that this woolen skirt doesn't come with lining as part of the pattern. I would not sew a winter skirt out of wool without lining. For the most part, adding a lining was not a huge problem. It was difficult (for me) at the fly front opening. I found this tutorial by SewingKay helped.
A wool blend from Darn Cheap Fabrics, plus some mystery lining from stash. I'm not sure why on the burdastyle website this is referred to as a stretch-knit skirt, when they recommend making it out of wool or wool blend - not stretch.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added a lining.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I'm tempted to keep it on the sew-again list. I love to wear it, and it does get compliments. But I hated trying to get the fly front & lining right.
This is a very ladylike skirt to wear. It's quite fitted around the thighs, so you are forced to take dainty little steps – this is not how I usually walk. But I like to wear it. Also, it's great on a cold day. It's like wearing a blanket.
