My first Burda (magazine) pattern... 02-2010-104 skirt. I love the simplicity of this skirt! There's some great versions here and here and here. I'm glad this was my first Burda pattern since it's so easy... I didn't really need to refer to Burda's infamous instructions. :)
Fabric: Stretch cotton sateen print from Hancock Fabrics from summer 2009
Notions: invisible white zipper
As much I love this skirt, I ended up giving it away to my sister-in-law due to sizing. I like to wear my bottoms at my lower waist. The pattern specifically said that the top of the waistband was going to be at my waist, and I chose to ignore it. It wasn't blatantly ignored... I reasoned it through saying that the little bit of lycra would be enough to make the skirt hit my lower waist. I was wrong because it was interfaced! Haha... I could wear, but I wouldn't be happy with it. It's where it will be loved and worn. :)
On another note, the waistband got a little wonky and the "stitch in the ditch" isn't looking so hot... I think it's because I was originally going to omit the interfacing and then changed my mind, which ended up going on the lining/inside portion.
But on a good note... my invisible zipper looks much better than my last skirt.
Even though I didn't end up with the skirt, I really like the pattern and will give it another shot. Happy creating!
