Last night I went to see The Crucible at Trinity Rep. I got all dressed up in my new black pencil skirt I mentioned I wanted to make here.
I made it from view A of Burda 8155. I like how flattering it is but I don't know about the waistband. It's higher in the front and I don't really like how it sits away from the body in the front.
I also made a matching hat to go with the outfit. I love it and definitely want to make more! I made this kind of on a whim about an hour before I had to leave and I didn't have any heavy buckram on hand so I used some heavy sew-in interfacing I had. It worked okay, but I am anxious to make one with the correct materials.
