Creation: Burda 05-2012-106, Godet Skirt

This is a skirt I practically finished three years ago. It didn’t fit back then and it was thrown back into the dark corners of my sewing room, only to re-emerge a few weeks ago when I was doing a re-organisation. This time it did fit and all I had to do was install the facings and hem the skirt, making it 20 cm shorter in the process.

Since it was three years ago that I made the bulk of this skirt I don’t remember much about the details. The fabric is a woven bamboo twill, very lightweight. With the knowledge I’ve gained over the past three years, this skirt would probably be better in a heavier fabric, this fabric is also very prone to wrinkles. Also, the colour is not one I would have picked out now, it’s too soft for me. That said, I will wear the skirt over the summer and decide its fate after some test runs. But while taking the photographs I loved wearing it and how it felt on me and flowed in the wind, so it might get some wear after all.

The pattern is Burda 05-2012-106. It’s a flared skirt, getting its shape from godets in the front and back. The front is characterised with big welt pockets. I love the pockets and shape of the skirt. For some reason I made the skirt really long when cutting it, it’s now about 65 cm long and it’s a good length on me, I think. I didn’t do the buttons down the front, instead I put an invisible zipper in the back. I really want to make a new version of this skirt, in a more appropriate fabric, especially after seeing the beautiful versions on the Burdastyle project page.

I really don’t have much more to add about this project, since I don’t remember much more about it.

Swoosh!

Denna kjolen påbörjades för tre år sedan, men passade inte då och har sedan dess varit förpassad till syrummets gömmor. Jag hittade den vid en standing för några veckor sedan och nu passade den, så jag sydde färdigt den, det var infodringarna och fållen som var kvar. Mönstret är Burda 05-2012-106 och tyget är bambutwill från Stoff och Stil.

Jag gillar kjolen, men tyget är lite för lätt för den och jag är inte helt säker på att jag gillar färgen. Modellen gillar jag och jag vill gärna sy den igen, i ett mer stabilt tyg. Denna gang har jag tagit bort knappslån fram och ersatt med ett osynligt blixtlås bak, en ändring som jag nog kommer att fortsätta med. Fickorna älskar jag, även om de inte riktigt håller formen i detta lätta tyg.

Nu hoppas jag på varmt väder i sommar så att jag kan bära min nya kjol och hoppas att jag kommer att trivas i den!
