Finally I should post some pictures of my new orange skirt! I am pretty bad model and Semeon is not the best fashion photographer(sorry, darling!) so the first attempt to photo the skirt last Saturday didn't satisfied me. Then I asked my tripod for help, I tried 2 times and still no good result! I decided to stop and post what I have. May be next time we will produce better stuff%)
I choose to make 08/2012 314 from Burda Style magazine. This was pretty easy and fast. My only change was to add the lining because this is wool skirt and I want to wear it with the tights. Oh, I also added 3 more cm to the length. Only one difficulty was to turn out the corners near the zipper after stitching the facing because the fabric was pretty thick.
I like the result!
And close-up! Don't pay attention to our old Soviet style balcony!
|The same color with balcony%)|
PS. I have small piece of left-over, so may be I will add pockets later to my skirt%) Like at the skirt 08/2012 135 but without flaps, not enough fabric for them.
