Summer and Linen

I really can't come up with much to say about this skirt. It's red. It's linen. It's great.

The pattern is from Burda 09/2015 and this might become the first pattern ever that I make more than once. That is how much I like it.

All the wrinkles you can see came when taking these pictures, so yes, it is very much linen.

 I added the pockets, but they are a bit low, since I didn't want them to add bulk to the yoke.

Summer is gone now where I live, so it's time to dig out all the wool again. I'm trying to stay in denial for a little while longer though. How about you? Are you looking forward to sewing all the winter projects already, or are you still holding on to all things summer? 


  1. This is lovely! The color is divine! I look forward to seeing more versions.

    1. Thank you! I would never have guessed I'd like it this much!

  2. Oh I love that skirt! So flattering and a lovely color. You might try kangaroo pockets in that front seam next time you make this up. I think they'd be perfect.

  3. Thank you and thank you for the idea! I didn't even think of that!

  4. it's beautiful! Hard to go wrong with linen in the summer, it's always so effortless and perfect to wear. The colour you chose is great.
