Burda 10-2008 #103 Pleated Skirt

This is the fabric my husband bought me when he was in Houston. I chose the easiest-to-work-with fabric first. I am using the BWOF 10-2008 #103 pattern again because I like it so much. I lopped off about four inches at the hem again. This time I also added an orange piping strip that separated the pattern pieces. I didn't want it to look sorta mismatched so I did this so there would be an obvious line. Here is the first skirt I made with this pattern.

The back.


Pleat and piping detail on the front.

Here it is with matching tights. I didn't want to be too matchy-matchy so I picked the green top. I rather like it that way. And no, I haven't really been up for long.


Another back shot.

I still have a few Christmas presents to crank through so I'm going to try to do that today!

That is the perfect skirt pattern for that fabric. Way to whip that out!

BTW - I found the recent BWOF shawl collar blazer that you mentioned and I think I'm going to go for that one!

The skirt turned out so cute! How do you put things together so quickly?? I love the plaid...very school girl looking. If you have extra material, you should make a matching scarf!
