Burda 7652 View A

Aloha Dear Readers,

I have completed another Burda 7652 skirt, but this time I made view A.  You can see the first version of this skirt here, which is the longer skirt in view B, along with the technical drawing.

Again, I cut a size 10 and made no alterations except to only take up a one half inch seam on the sides instead of a 5/8 inch seam.  I inserted an invisible zipper.  This fabric came from a medium-weight cotton sarong that I purchased at Costco for $14.99 plus tax.  You never know where you might find good fabric!  Here is the finished skirt along with some close-up detail shots.

That's all for now.  We are having a wet Sunday today as the remnants of former tropical cyclone Wali pass over the islands.  How's your weather been this weekend?

Way too hot in Central Oregon. Wildfires mostly contained when I left this morning back to misty Willamette Valley which sunned back up in the afternoon.
It's nice to see different parts of Oregon.
I had the opportunity to go to Costco this weekend and I did not see fabric!

Cute skirt. That curved yoke suits your figure well.

We had a cold and windy Saturday.
Love how you've found a sarong that suited your skirt style.

The curved yoke is really nice and the CF split is a nice feature. You are the skirt goddess :-) How is the weather in my area? Gorgeous skies, occasional breezes, 100+ with a forecast of 110 this week (unusual). I have cabin fever.

I love making skirts from sarongs and this one turned out particularly nicely. Weather wise in England it is a warm high of about 24 c for us most days. We complain it's too hot ;)

Cute skirt!

Did you see any celebs while at Costco? :)

It is overcast today, in the low 80's and not humid at all, hurrah! 60's at night. Unusually cool.
