Burda Plus Fashion Magazine – 02-2003-409 (Pegged Knit Skirt)

Pattern Description: burda plus spring 2004 pegged knit skirt
This is a pegged skirt made out of stretch knit fabrics.

Pattern Sizing:
44-52. I traced a 48, but I added 3/4 of an inch at every seam allowance, including center back, so I added 4.5 inches.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Sorta. I was so scared mine would be small that I made it very large. Because the knit has a nice drape to it, I decided not to take it in, but next time, I’ll use a slightly bigger seam allowance. I didn’t get the bottom of the skirt in the picture, but to someone who knows about pegging, it looks pegged. If you didn’t know about pegging (ie nonsewer), it looks like a straight skirt.

Were the instructions easy to follow?burda plus spring 2004 pegged knit skirt
NONONO. They were terrible. I used a Kwik Sew back vent skirt instructions for the back vent. After that, it was just sew the sides and fold over the waistband. The instructions called for a lining, and maybe if I used a lining, I might have understood the instructions.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
LIKE: I like pegged straight skirts.
LIKE: It’s nice and long. I like my skirts ankle length.
LIKE: It’s out of knit, so it’s very comfortable.

DISLIKE: The instructions were awful.

Fabric Used:
100% polyester stretch knit, “moleskin” I think, in a blue and brown print.

Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made:
I made it much larger than the pattern, and I think it is big. Next time, I try it a little smaller. I didn’t use the instructions.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I’m going to make it again. It’s very easy to sew.

Conclusion
Comfortable, attractive knit skirt.
