Skirt Pattern Investigation

Bet y'all thought I was never going to mention sewing again, huh??

I was so excited to get my February Burda Style magazine (the real one, not the US knockoff) because of THE BACK COVER!!!

It features this skirt in the red lace overlay version:

What can I say? That skirt speaks to me. Lace overlay. Casual chic chambray. Swishy half circle goodness. Shaped almost yoke waist. *love*

Unfortunately I can't find it on the site, but I found it on this German site. I'm not sure if that means it's an old pattern or a new pattern? I'm hoping new so I can pick it up! Because I also love that center view, the red & white wide stripes! (Reminds me of a Kate Spade skirt from a couple of years ago).

If I can't find it, I'm fairly certain I can wing this one on my own though. Finding the lace will probably be the hardest part! But mmmm-hmmm, I am certainly going to give it my best shot.

What's in your sewing basket for (not even close yet) spring??


  1. That's really cute... I like the red and white one... Good luck!

  2. I've not been pleased with the last couple of garments I made myself so I'm planning on sewing for my house instead. : ) I'm wanting to make some throw rugs for my kitchen and baths. I probably will sew me a couple of new skirts when spring rolls around though.

    Good luck with finding the pattern, it's really cute!

  3. that's a super cute skirt. Keep us posted on the lace sourcing please - I'm dying to add some lace to my closet.

    Sewing for spring - dresses, dresses and more dresses. I'm hoping to work on fitting Elisalex, Simplicity 2444 (??), and the Simplicity vintage one that Rosie Wednesday is sewing along!

    So very, very good to see a blog post! g

  4. I found the pattern here:|186|186&pageCount=18&search=6904&return=yes
    Just happened to get an email tho I've never actually ordered from this site.

  5. It's there now. I can't wait to see your version.


I love hearing from you, and thank you in advance for reading and commenting! &
