I am not lying when I am telling you that the last time I checked out what's in there was years ago, maybe even before the bag left Germany... who knows?
I remember that I stopped sewing because I thought it looked hideous. Actually the fabric is really nice, a soft and not too thick wool fabric in black (or more like anthracite), with a little hint of white and orange. Practically matching everything!
I already had the zipper and half of the waistband attached.
I cut off about 9 inches so that the overall skirt now has a length of 18 inches. This way it looks just so much better.
The pattern by the way was an older (German) Burda pattern which I slightly changed:
- I decided to put the zipper to the right side and not to the back.
- I put the darts to the front part of the skirt (for some reason this is where I need them when sewing cothes. Not on my butt obviously...)
Thanks for reading! If you like my skirt please feel free to leave me a comment. I am always glad for feedback :)
