The skirt is done!! Here is what Burda says about this style, "A lady of rank is well-dressed in this flared, below-calf skirt. An inverted box pleat and wool herringbone fabric with crosswise stretch furnish plenty room for romping with the heirs." I love that description!
And I am excited to say, it went together easily and without a hitch, and it fits perfectly with no adjustments. An unequivocal success! Bring on the Burda!! I wish I had a slightly better photo of the front! You can't see the inverted pleat. I think I am a bit obsessed with inverted pleats at the moment.
Here is the side and back.
I made it out of a soft wool houndstooth that I found at Hancock's. In the past, I've not found a lot of apparel fabrics there that I love, but this one is quite nice.
One thing that I love about Burda is that they don't skimp. This skirt is beautifully constructed and fully lined.
The only thing that I changed was to eliminate the front fly and button and to put in a back invisible zipper. I LOVE invisible zippers!!!
Vogue tee as well. I think it will look very nice with this skirt, but I think I need a nice pair of boots to complete the look...
