I decided to make my favorite skirt again for the September MAGAM Challenge. The theme for this month is "Shirty, Skirty" - meaning make either a shirt or a skirt or both! Sorry, I didn't post my original plans to start with but here's the finished product! This is Burda 7342 made from a nice red wool crepe I had in the stash.
I have made this skirt multiple times and still love it! It has a nice twirl factor that isn't too revealing.....
And those mock pocket flaps in the front add a nice bit of interest.
Here is is on the dress form under less windy conditions.
Back view with an invisible zipper.
The lining is a super soft silky feeling print (probably polyester), that also came from the stash. Don't you just love the cherry print!
And voila - the back with hand stitched lining along the invisible zipper.
For everyone following my stashbustin' quest - here are the latest stats:
Yardage for this skirt:
2.375 yards of red crepe
2.375 yards of lining
Total for this skirt = 4.75 yards
Total YTD = 65.41 yards
Happy sewing everyone!
