BurdaStyle skirt take two


Remember a few weeks back I made a high waist-ed skirt from the February 2011 issue of BurdaStyle, a things went a bit wrong? Iron burn marks, wrong fabric, to a bit to fitted or forgot to cut the lining pieces?  Yeah, the post ‘Skirt Muslin!?’ says it all!

So I so wanted to try this skirt, that I’ve added a bit more ease, so I can actually be able to sit down while wearing it. As I did not want to retrace the skirt, i just added 0.5 cm to the centre fold lines. That seemed to fix it for me.

This time, I’ve waited for my zipper invisible zip to arrive and used Coleen G Lea’s tutorial to insert the lining to zipper  by machine and not hand stitched. It worked fine for me Smile. I had no idea it was that easy. I had to see her video to figure who it goes in.

My skirt is not perfect, but the second version is much better than the first one Red heart. It is a bit looser, but I like it better, because I can actually move easier than in the other one. Here are some picks of the second skirt. 


I am much happier now. the new skirt is lovely Smile

Also I wanted to let you know that I also started working on  the Cynthia Rowley 1802 dress.

I don't really like talking about myself. But, I love sewing and after reading a lot of blogs on the internet about it, I've decided to give it a go as well. I am Romanian born, but live in the UK. I am a bit selfish when it comes to sewing. I tend to make stuff more for myself. Others have to go through a lot of torture in order for me to make something. My mum did it twice. Well I only wanted to make the dresses fit her perfectly. And in the end they looked great.
