Black Magic… Sewing on Velvet

I’m going out to lunch tomorrow and I decided I needed one of those skinny skirts to go over my leggings.

I used Burda 8344  for my pattern and made it up in about an hour.

Burda Skirt Pattern 8344

I love it!  It’s cute, fashionable, simple to make and most importantly I feel like I can go out in my leggings without feeling like I woke up in one of those bad dreams where you find yourself in a public place with a major item of clothing missing.  🙂

I would definitely consider making this skirt again… bright red would be fun.

  1. Good job kerri…. Perhaps I once told you, I’ve worked in clothing factories. I understand correctly, the difficulty of sewing. But I myself have never sewed. I am in charge of marketing, export-import, finance, production, and my customers are Levy’s, Wal-Mart, JC Penny, Esprit, Etc.. Seeing your work, I like looking back at my past. Thanks for sharing ….. 🙂
