Pattern Review Burda Style 9/2008 #124

Burda Style 9/2008 #124
You probably overlooked this pattern.  The skirt is barely visible in this photo.

The fabric is a stretch denim from Tibi now sold out!

Prewash: I washed this in cold water on the cotton cycle and also used the cotton cycle to dry.

Notions: Gutermann thread # 267 and #870 for topstitching, Stay Tape, 9" YKK invisible zipper #560 and Bosal Sheer Fusible Tricot Interfacing for the yoke

Alterations: The only alteration was to the back yoke.  I finally admit I have a slight sway back.  LOL!

Construction Details: This is a very quick and simple project.  
I've highlighted a just a few construction tips:
  • I used stay tape at the waistline and also where the yoke and skirt are joined. 

  •  Make sure to leave a little ease when attaching the belt loops to the yoke.

  • Finished belt loop

  • Topstitching on pleats

The knit top is from Ann Taylor Loft, belt is by Jessica Simpson and the shoes are from DSW.  I love cork heels.  Even as high heels the cork is still so comfortable.

If you have this issue of Burda Style give this skirt a try. It's a classic.  I'll make this skirt again in the natural linen for summer and the black menswear wool for fall.
