Burda Plus Winter 2003 retro skirt
I did not have my skirt fitted. I ended up ripping the whole thing apart and resewing it. The @#$%ing thing was too big. I’ve got to get over my fear of making something too small and trust my measuring & fitting skills. The petersham ribbon didn’t work because you need to plan for it from the beginning. I had not. However, it is now completed, and I’m happy that it’s done.

Finished! Working late at night in poor light is not the best way to sew. I noticed that there is a fade line down the center of the fabric I used to make this skirt.

The pattern seems to fit without any alteration, so I cut out Robert’s sweatshirt.

I had enough of the fabric left over from Robert’s sweatshirt to cut out the shawl collar view. I love this pattern. This will be the third time that I’ve made it.

I decided to hem the sleeves instead of doing a rolled edge.

I put off the decision on how to hem the necklines and put in the sleeves. The shorts are ready for the waistband elastic.
