I made a muslin of the BS 01/2011/113 skirt and, well I just don’t like it. The godet kick ‘pleat’ thingy looks too much like a shark fin and I don’t think that’s pretty. I made the muslin in a soft cotton sheeting and the damned thing still sticks out.
Actually I do like the yoke at the waist and the shape and style of the rest of the skirt so I wonder if I could do something else instead of the godet. I will have a think. Then again there are so many pencil skirt patterns out there that I probably won’t bother.
Unfortunately I can’t / won’t post a pic of the muslin on because I cut the wrong size – it was too small. It seems I can’t measure myself correctly at the moment. Never mind. Anyway, the alternative I have come up with is BurdaStyle 02/2011/107. I’ll probably go for view A and hope there isn’t another godet doodah to deal with.
Yes I will make this one a little bigger. I have no waist so 107 will be a good one potentially ‘cos I can fiddle with the darts I guess…… that’ll be a learning experience.
