Burda 09-2008-120 Pencil Skirt Part II

So, after looking at these photos I think it's okay. What do you guys think though?




I've been doing quite a bit of lifting lately. Hence the ponytail.


I have quite a bit of business sewing to do but after that it's on to the April Burda. There are a couple of things in there that I need to make.

Ok, so I commented on the wrong post. I still think it looks great!

I like the length. I'd leave it. I think it's a good proportion - the length of the top helps, too. It just works. Really cute, too. Almost too bad you can't see the lining.

Emily said...

Pfft - no, it's adorable! Particularly with the boots, I think you have just the right proportions going on. Any longer, and it's just a showcase for your knees (not that you don't have cute knees!). Another winner. :)

I think it looks great! Not too short,and definitely not "mutton dressed as lamb".

And, great guns girlfriend! Going for the Shelly O look, eh? :)

Lory said...

Very cute! And the boots are the perfect companion, kudos. :):):)

Gail said...

I think your skirt looks great, nice fabric. I wonder why you didn't like the pleats from the pattern? Your biceps are sooo impressive by the way

I think it looks great! The length is great the way you are wearing it, not too young at all - might be different on you with heels but with flats or your boots it looks good. You have great legs too so why not show them? :-)

Vicki said...

Very cute!

Rachel said...

That skirt is super cute!!! I love the entire outfit.

Paulette said...

Dawn - looks great!!

Sandra said...

Hi Dawn, great skirt and the length looks good on you. I'm also admiring your long sleeved knit top with loose polo neck - did you sew this as well? We are heading into winter dOWN uNDER and I've been looking for a similar pattern - hoping it might be a BWOF, Jalie or KWIK-SEW as these are available here. No urgency though as it is still unseasonally hot today!

AllisonC said...

It's absolutely fine - not that anyone is going to dare tell you otherwise with those biceps! Seriously it's perfect!

Lisa said...

Awesome. Luv it with the boots!

Little Hunting Creek said...

Cute skirt and the length is perfect. Also great arms! Aren't you glad it's spring?

Jenny said...

It looks great! I would totally wear it to church, so why not to teach? :-) You could always wear dark tights with it for a little more leg coverage.

Marsha said...

I think the length is perfect...looks great with boots or shoes! Nice job!

Your skirt is great! And I don't think it's too short. You are not trying too hard.

I like the skirt - especially with the boots!

Shannon said...

Nice pipes!

The skirt looks great at that length - I think you look appropriate and adorable!

Take View 1, add black tights and sexy black pumps and you could be an assistant editor at a fashion magazine. Or a publishing babe.

Kristine said...

Whoa! Which way to gun show??? Yowza, you made my skirt look like a potato sack! Nice job!!

Sue said...

That skirt is a great length on you - very flattering!

Ann's Fashion Studio said...

I agree, the skirt length looks great :)

Mardel said...
