Burda 08-2006-103 Skirt with back godets

Finished the BWOF skirt. I really like it. I'll be making this in a wool too. Maybe wool crepe? Maybe this awesome purple wool twill? I do really like it though. Sorry for the fuzzy pictures.

I always use the zipper technique from the Fashion-Incubator website. There is a link in my favorite tutorials sidebar.


I think I made the lining a bit short. Oops. I didn't add seam allowances and I'm sure I should have done it. I may have to wear a slip with this one.


I love the butt shape it creates.


It is almost mermaid-y.


Here is the full review if you want to see it. No major issues or anything.

I finished my jeans too. The weather was much more conducive to driving today. I added brass snaps to the back flap pockets.

I added a brass "Dungaree Buttons" to the front. I've never used these before. I am wondering how sturdy they will be. Basically you put the tack part through the pants and then push the "button" on to the tack. It seems pretty secure but I'll keep you posted of any developments.

I remember you had issues with the pants waist being so high, but I love it :) very fresh - it gives a great rear view.

Love the skirt! I don't think you did the lining wrong, though - mine's that short, too. BWOF marked the lining to end at the point the gores spread out, I'm guessing so it doesn't show as you walk. It does feel kinda weird though!

Great skirt, I love it with the jacket!

I love the skirt and the jeans. You are so talented. Can you write a blog on how you manage to accomplish so much in such a short time? It takes me a week to get a simple dress made. I work full time outside the home, but you have two children which I would think would take up much more time. Help.

I've used those buttons before on jeans and jackets and they haven't come off so far. I adore your skirt. I often make my linings shorter in a skirt like that. I don't think you need the lining any lower, particularly with the swishy gores - it would probably get in the way. Love the jeans, too. I'm just about to embark on a BWOF pair for my SWAP, so you've given me some ideas. Thanks
