A catch up post...

A few new things to show you...

First up is another Burda 04-2009-101 skirt.  This time in a brown denim.  

Different to last time :
  • I took it in about 3cm.  I keep wondering if I traced the pattern wrong as I normally fit these patterns so well!  
  • added the pockets
  • added the top-stitching.  I used the triple stitch on machine in a olive green thread.  This colour is actually woven into the fabric.
  • used jeans buttons.

I have paired it with my striped burda top 02-2010-112.  Every where I went this week-end I saw striped tees - I felt right on the money!

I have also finished another Burda bateau neck top 02-2009-108 in blue this time...

I think this is the fourth time for this top ... TNT status achieved!

The plan is make a few new to me patterns next... Ciao for now! 


  1. Love the skirt, it looks great on you!

  2. Nice skirt. I am yet to make it up, but always admire it.

  3. Your new skirt is gorgeous. I love it paired with your striped top. Very stylish, indeed.

    You've also nailed it with the blue top. It's one of your perfect colours, for sure! (Nice photos, too!)

  4. Good work on the brown skirt, Sue. Love the blue colour on you too. Di

  5. Great skirt with some really nice details. And it's styled perfectly with the striped top.

  6. That is one snazzy looking skirt! I like its versatility.

  7. Love the olive stitch detail and the cute little pockets. Very nice! You should get loads of wear out of a nice brown skirt like that.

  8. I love the look of this skirt on you, beautiful fit and the detailing is very professional.

  9. I LOVE the brown is amazing. The stitch detail really makes it unique.


Love to hear what you think...
