I have another Burda 8281 skirt to share with you. It is amazing how much faster it goes when you immediately make another version of the same pattern. For this Burda skirt I used a quilting cotton that I picked up on one of my travels to Oregon. The selvage reads: E. Young. Women's Business copyright M&S Textiles Australia. I love the print. When I purchased this fabric I knew I would be making a skirt out of it. I did not buy enough to match the print along the back or side seams, but I am not bothered by that since it is a "busy" print. I like the layout on the front, and for the front piece I did not cut it on the bias so that I could have this particular layout. The back pieces are cut on the bias, the skirt is fully lined, and it features an invisible zipper, just like the one in the previous post. I do need to run to town to pick up some more hooks and eyes this morning. I will add those to the waistband later today to complete the skirt. This is such a perfect pattern for cool, cotton, summery, skirts!
My name is Shannon, but my siblings call me Mushy... I am a 45 year old wife and mom. I started sewing in junior high or high school on my mom's Viking. I had an amazing Home Economics teacher who taught me solid techniques. By my junior year, I had sewn a Vogue Bellville Sassoon dress, rated "advanced" for prom. Sewing runs in the family. I was bound to catch the "bug". I hope to inspire you to pursue your sewing interests as I have been inspired by others in the sewing community to pursue mine. Thanks for visiting!
