Me-made skirt with flounce pattern 102 Burda November 2016 ... Sewionista.com ... Sewing ... Slow Fashion ... DIY ... Blog

As you know, I’m a big fan of contrasts. So when I saw a feminine skirt with flounce made from a masculine suit fabric on my biggest source of inspiration Pinterest, this skirt made it immediately to the top of my sewing list. I found the perfect fabric for this project at the Maybachufer fabric market here in Berlin. Inspired by the fabric diet that is organized also this year by  Küstensocke, I want to at least diminish my fabric stash in 2018 a little and make sure that it doesn’t grow anymore. That’s why I’m trying to only buy fabrics, when I already have a clear project in mind and will be able to finish it soon. This new method worked very well for this skirt and I have sewn the fabric the same month I bought it. Keep your fingers crossed that I keep up with this 😉 But now more about this pattern:

Pattern Modifications: None. Next time I will add around 0.5 cm width at the hips as the pattern is there a little slimmer than usual.

Conclusion: A sewing project has never made it so fast from inspiration to finished garment! This shows that the skirt with flounce is right up my alley. I’m also really loving the finished and it turned out just as I imagined. As mentioned above, I would add a little more width at the hip for the next version. The fit is nevertheless great, but it would make the skirt a little more comfortable. However, this is a really great pattern and I can highly recommend it! Especially, as the illustrated step-by-step instructions make it easy to sew it even for (advanced) beginners.
