Burda 12/09 #122
Sorry, no pictures of me wearing it. I will post one on Thursday, as I plan to wear the outfit on Wednesday. It might look a bit long compared to the other versions that others have made, and it is actually between the length of the shorter version and longer version, but with all the details (top stitching!) of the shorter one.
I added the belt loops, although I'm not sure why. I rarely wear a belt or things tucked in for that matter. Belts at the waist do not always help the short waisted figure.
Burda only had one button on the waistband, but the waistband is wide, so I used two buttons instead. The motif on the buttons works nicely with the facing fabric.
I'm really happy with the skirt - it turned out very well, I was able to try out a new technique, and is the perfect color boost for the middle of winter. Tomorrow I will get those trousers cut out and started!
Parting Shot: Another Scarf. I've completed another scarf, this one is for my son. The yarn is a washable acrylic blend, and while it isn't the nicest or most expensive yarn, it will stand up nicely to the use (and abuse) of an 8 year old boy.
