Burda 7252 pencil skirt
This is THE most amazing skirt I’ve ever made.. hands down! I don’t wear high waisted garments very often as for me it enhances areas I don’t want enhanced, but this skirts shape skims and flatters. The pleat, shaped waistband and double darts at the back gives this piece something really different.
Also, the welt pockets at the front are real – who doesn’t love a pocket?
I don't know if its because I didn't have the instructions but I do think there could be a better way for the zip insertion…. It seems very complex and a little messy….
I don’t have the instructions for this skirt as I traced it from a friend who is lucky enough to be living in New York now so I followed the directions from this amazing blog:
I used a contrasting fabric for the welt pockets as well as the back pleat which for me, really makes it.
Wrap it up!
I would definitely tell others to sew this at least once! It’s a sexy skirt that has potential to be worn on various occasions. I don’t personally have many opportunities to wear this one but I do love it and think its totally verstatile – dressed for the day with a stretch top and dressed up with a pussy bow blouse… oh! I’d better rush off and find myself a pussy blouse pattern!
