Now this is the Burda mag I am using to make a couple of skirts out of, sorry can not remember which issue this is, when I have unpacked I will hunt it down and update for all. below is the finished skirt, i also made a black wool one and worked like a production line sewing the same stages as I went along.

I have also written about our great weekend away over on Fleurs Adventure In Sewing Mayhem .com with a little more info on what I got up to…

One of the two skirts made by Fleur, both featuring recycled handbag hardware as front pleat closures (Burdastyle magazine pattern).
