Fabric: 70cm of 150cm wide jersey (medium thickness)
Time spent sewing: After the pattern was printed and taped together, about 1-1.5 hours
- The fabric must be a suiting fabric, e.g.: wool blend, flannel, etc
- The ribbon must be no wider than 4cm, and it should be sewn ON the right side of each flap, about 3-4 cv into it, and not into the seams of the flap, like mine. Also my ribbon is way too large- i am going to look for a more suitable one and will change it later.
- The folds on the top, might be created by adding narrow elastic, just at the level where the ribbons tie on the inside
my version is a mini skirt, about 15cm shorter than the pattern
Conclusion: The skirt turned out much better than I expected. Just like Rachel's my Betty J skirt started as a muslin, but was surprisingly quite good at the end. I am sure it will see the outside of my wardrobe much more often than I even expect!
I am very happy to offer yet another PDF pattern and I would absolutely love to see more versions of Betty J skirt! So if you decide to whip yourself up one of them, you can upload your Betty J project and connect it to me on Burdastyle.com (just choose "based on existing project" Betty J Paper Bag Skirt ) or you can upload it on Sewing And Style on Facebook.
And just before I go- our April Giveaway is still on, so don't miss out!
