Plaid Midi Skirt: Burda 10/2010 #117

 

Burda 10-2010-117 plaidI seem to be blogging all the winter stuff now that it’s spring.  This is the big skirt from Burda’s October 2012 issue.  DD1 wanted it made up in this gorgeous teal blue/grey plaid for her winter wardrobe.  Burda 10-2010-117 sideOf course I was happy to oblige.

I think my favourite feature it the deep pleats on either side of the flat centre front panel, giving the illusion of an overskirt.The waistband is a simple petersham ribbon.  It was a bit of a challenge fitting the yards of fabric into the waistline.Burda 10-2010-117 skirt (2)Especially since I decided to add a lining cut as long and wide as the skirt instead of streamlining it down to reduce bulk.
