Burdastyle faux wrap skirt

I have been sewing up a storm for my entry to the PR wardrobe contest.  Not sure if I will get everything blogged individually, but here is the Burdastyle skirt I made.

The pattern is Burdastyle 07-2017-113.  The fabric is a heavy white denim, that I found in my cupboard and am unsure of the origins.  The hem bands are a grey linen, interfaced to match the weight of the denim.

The back of the skirt is plain.

My fabric was heavier than the fabrics listed for the pattern, so I swapped the invisible zip for a lapped zipper and button closure.

I stuck a sneaky pocket in between the front layers.  It it sort of like the coin pocket on men's trousers, only a bit bigger.

I haven't been wearing skirts much lately, but it is good to mix things up now and then.


  1. I love those sorts of pockets!

    Cute skirt; I love the contrast.

  2. I love how this turned out, I want one too now! The little pocket is a really clever idea.
