Somehow I’ve found myself making quite a lot of blue things for this blog, even though I’ve never thought of blue as a favourite colour or anything. And yet I keep coming back to it. Maybe it’s just nice and neutral without being boring? I don’t know.
Anyway, I made this skirt based on pattern #106B from Burda 05/2012 — though I drafted my own pattern — but it’s basically the exact same skirt:
Boyfriend called this my “model face”, since I look all serious and slightly bored/dazed…
I got rid of the front buttons, since they always end up looking a bit weird on a tight skirt. The fabric is some kind of cotton mix that cost me 11 euros for a piece of over 3 metres, so not a bad price. Fully lined with some grey leftover lining I had lying around. There’s a slightly enforced facing along the waistline like in the skirt with no side seams, to keep it from wrinkling up too much.
The zipper on the back is actually a vintage metal zipper I bought from a flee market a long time ago. It’s not in its prime anymore, but works well, and I really love the colour.
For some reason all my expressions were either like this (a little manic) or slightly depressed — somehow I just couldn’t act normally today.
I really really like this skirt! The silhouette is lovely and the pockets are superb, so yay! A definite spring hit, once spring finally decides to show up here in Finland.
