HI DARLINGS! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I spent most of it sewing (yay) including this skirt that I have on. I love this skirt!! and the pattern allows for us of multi fabrics which makes it so much fun to do. I used one print in two different color ways for this skirt but I intend on making it with several different fabrics soon. Pattern review for this DIY is below.

UPDATE: Fabric was located HERE and HERE by an awesome reader, thanks for sharing.

I will see you guys tomorrow with a Tipsy Tuesday! If there is a tip or something you want me to cover on Tipsy Tuesdays let me know in the comments.

Oh! Before I forget, for those of you who have signed up for my SEW IT! Academy you will start getting emails today so make sure to look out for it. If you have not signed up for a special rate and notifications check the end of this post. xoxo

Pattern Description: BURDA 6965 Misses Vintage Style Skirt

Pattern Sizing: I cut the 1O

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes! You literally cut out 2 pattern pieces. The skirt pattern piece for the view I did is just one piece cut 4 times in each of your two fabrics so you end up with 8 and then you cut the waistband.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the fit and flare of the skirt. It is very flattering.

Fabric Used: This is an Anna Maria Horner print I picked up at Michael Levine but they don’t seem to have it online. You can always call the store, tell them its on todays post and they will look it up for you.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? YES!!!



We will be launching May 9th with the BEGINNERS SEWING COURSE where I will cover EVERYTHING you need to know about learning to sew, from turning your sewing machine on and understanding what everything is, to creating your very own clothes.
