Here's my new skirt! Hurray, something for me!! Okay, so this was totally not on my radar to make. I surprisingly did not own a black skirt, but really wasn't feeling the need for one either. And then I got the December magazine in the mail and fell completely in love with this design. I had all the materials in my stash so didn't have to buy anything. And what do you know? With this one little addition I suddenly have 3 new outfits!
Here's the back. It's looking like a nice black blob, right? Don't worry, the next few pictures are in full sun so you can see the details.
Let's start with the black-line drawing so you can see exactly what is going on here. I've scanned it for you because Burda never puts the drawings of the back on their website. Grrr, that's a pet peeve.
(Notice the slight amount of bulk at the waistline. This is why I always plan to wear this with a belt. Even the model in the magazine picture has one on.)

I've decided I need to find a cute wide belt like this one.
And what is up with this pose? She's covering the lines of the skirt with her clutch. Sometimes the pictures they choose to show off their designs leave me scratching my head.
Well, this practically flew off my machine. And I even had some fit issues since it's my first BWOF bottom. I'm done with all the costumes and am back to garment sewing!!! I am making a few Christmas gifts, though, but will have to wait until after the holiday to post pictures of those.
