Burda 08-2005-102

2 things inspired me to make this skirt.

The first was I had the yellow top I had purchased awhile ago and I wanted a skirt to go with it that wasn't black. And I had a new necklace that I hadn't worn yet either.

The second inspirations was Summerset's refashioned plaid skirt. It reminded me that I have a Burda pattern that I had made before (so no tracing, fitting, etc) that had a similar look. And I had the perfect fabric - grey check with a gold tread.

The fabric is a cheapy from Spotlight off their $2 table. The lining is a viscose. I added lace to make it pretty.

I did my usual of eliminating the waistband and the facings. I have a set on Flickr that goes through these steps and also has photos of my original skirt.
Tomorrow I will get a photo of me wearing it.

The minute I saw your picture I immediately thought "Summerset"! Well done, Vicki, it looks fantastic!

I'm glad I inspired such a great skirt! I like the fabric - it has the seriousness of black without the ominous factor of black. Nice job - and the necklace is wonderful!

That's a great skirt. Isn't the internet great? There's inspiration every day!

Total outfit looks great-very stylish-short fitted jackets (even if RTW) are fantastic peices in a wardrobe-will the jacket be an RTW purchase or do you have a pattern/fabric in mind?
