MY BURDA CREATION
I thought the picture of "MY BURDA SKIRT" as I call it, looked sort of tacky on my dress form. Well I finally got around to wearing it today. I actually like it! Of course I know where every flaw lies but all in all I do like it. I love the idea of pencil skirts, but it's a good thing that it is made of stretch denim because going to the restroom was a bit challenging -it's easy to pull it up, but then you've got to pull it back down and therefore the challenge (lol).
Making my first Burda pattern was an emotional roller coaster for me, but I do think I'll make this skirt again as soon as I find the right fabric. After all the pattern is already traced and ready to go.
