BurdaStyle jenny skirt

....or the day after tomorrow, or the day after that. Darn you bloggers that make this look so easy. I find I never have everything I need. I don't have a photo, I don't have the words, I don't make the time, etc.

So as promised this is the jenny skirt. I am giving this skirt a firm two thumbs up. This pattern fit as is. I am making it again. This time I am going to shorten the waistband. I am not sure if this high waisted style is going to suit me long term. Again, burda I'm not lovin' the lack of a back vent. The pattern instructions have you turn in the seam allowance to finish the back slit.
I made this out of some mystery thrift-ed fabric. Which I love, by the way. It has some lycra content (so the skirt has some give) but still has a nice hand. The skirt pattern can be found here if you are interested.

As soon as I have decent light I'll get a photo of the entire outfit. In the dark the blouse looks like a yellow blob.

Nice skirt! Having the back slit just makes the skirt a bit faster to sew. I love high-waisted skirts and pants. Very stylish.

I'm all for plain black skirts-with back vent (necessary for ease of movement). Absolutely love your belt too.
