Pencil Skirt- Burda 8155- Pattern Review

So, I've finally figured out how to take photos of me in my creations.  I do think they look more realistic on me instead of skinny little faker size 10 (really 4) dress form.

The pattern is not centered on the front of my body in this photo- ok all the following

Side seam
I had fun wearing this all day at work.  I felt great in it and let's face it, isn't that what it's all about?  Making great clothes that no one else has that make you feel awesome.

Of course I work at an apparel company so people notice things more than maybe at other places.  One of my co workers was walking behind me and said "I can't stop looking at your butt- that pattern is memorizing!"  And then she wanted to touch it.

You know I strut around working just dying for someone to ask me where I got my skirt so I can say- I made it!  Yeah, I'm that girl.  Ok, see my review at Pattern Review DOT com.

Have a good weekend.  I'm off to yoga- as you can see from this back shot, I need it!


  1. At least you don't walk around work dying for someone to ask to touch your butt! Haha, too funny but I get you on wanting to tell someone, anyone. Your skirt is great, love your fabric choice!

  2. Great skirt - I've just stummbled across your blog and Im looking forward to seeing what you sew next. You've just inspired me to buy a couple of patterns - love the Amy Butler gum drop pillows and the Guy Laroche dress - could be dangerous reading!

  3. Your skirt looks fabulous! I liked it on the dress form, but you make it look great. Love the fabric~

  4. This skirt looks great, but this post had me laughing out loud!!!!!
