Burdastyle 09-2008-120 - a lovely basic skirt and now made for a third time. I use the two skirts I have already a lot, particularly the brown one as it goes so well with so many things. The floral one I love but you need to be in the mood to wear it!
So just to show you - plain orange on the outside, party on the inside...
I lined it with a remnant of stretch satin. I have also made pj shorts for myself from this fabric, so now the whole piece is out of my stash! I think it is going to work really well as a lining in this skirt. The orange fabric is very heavy and has a stretch and I think this satin will suit the weight of the fabric. It is also lovely and silky and with a bit of stretch I think will survive life as a lining in this skirt.
I lined the skirt as per the Burda instructions which have you sew the facing to the lining. I added my usual tab closure inside. I made the tab from orange on one side and lining on the other.
To hem the lining, I simply did a rolled hem on my overlocker. This seems to be working well on my other skirts and means there is less bulk in the hem.
Another post will follow shortly showing you the new tops I have made - one is shown above... Ciao!
