Remember a few weeks back I made a high waist-ed skirt from the February 2011 issue of BurdaStyle, a things went a bit wrong? Iron burn marks, wrong fabric, to a bit to fitted or forgot to cut the lining pieces? Yeah, the post ‘Skirt Muslin!?’ says it all!
So I so wanted to try this skirt, that I’ve added a bit more ease, so I can actually be able to sit down while wearing it. As I did not want to retrace the skirt, i just added 0.5 cm to the centre fold lines. That seemed to fix it for me.
This time, I’ve waited for my zipper invisible zip to arrive and used Coleen G Lea’s tutorial to insert the lining to zipper by machine and not hand stitched. It worked fine for me . I had no idea it was that easy. I had to see her video to figure who it goes in.
My skirt is not perfect, but the second version is much better than the first one . It is a bit looser, but I like it better, because I can actually move easier than in the other one. Here are some picks of the second skirt.
I am much happier now. the new skirt is lovely
Also I wanted to let you know that I also started working on the Cynthia Rowley 1802 dress.

Congratulations! Glad it worked out – though the pics are bit dark and I can’t really judge for myself 😉
Did not realise I turned off my flash,that’s why pictures are a bit dark will have to take a few more. The skirt look a tad big on me. But I am haapy i can sit and not feel like the seams will explode. 🙂
