|I tried to get more interesting photos outside today if you count a capeweed lawn as interesting.|
The pattern is from the most recent Burda Style that I own , 2/2018 , pencil skirt 119 , part of this beautiful suit . The most interesting ( and trickiest ) part of the skirt are the rectangular insets which also incorporate one of the pair of front darts. The rectangle extends across both the front and backs of the skirt. Because I usually do not tuck my tops into my skirts this feature will never be seen . Now Burda Style have a gazillion pencil skirt patterns and I really only chose this one over the others so I could at least have the satisfaction of having used the magazine. ( I bought this magazine for jacket 105 -a kimono inspired jacket with interesting front bands ) .
I did quite a good job of matching the print at the sides but a not so good job at the back.centre seam . However I am gratified that this does not show up too badly in these photos. But what I can not really get past in my other photos is that the hem looks uneven in the front because of the skewiff print . I hate going back fixing up finished projects but I might just be forced to do something about that hem .
Till next time , happy sewing.
( PS- I had enough of this fabric left over to make my middle daughter a skirt as well. I used another Burda Style pencil skirt pattern but did not get photos. )
