Hi!  So, this is the first time I've posted one of my projects here, mostly because it took me a while to figure out how!  Wink

I fell in love with the swingy-ness of the Burda Linda skirt and decided to try it out.  It uses a lot of fabric, so before running out to by so adorable red cord to make a winter skirt (although I live in Arizona so I might only get to wear it occassionally!), I wanted to use something I already had that was cheap...enter, mountains of black cotton I got last Halloween! 

This fabric had just been sitting around so I grabbed it up, printed out the pattern and made the skirt.  I loved it so much that I wore the skirt to a birthday party and will be making at least two more, one in light weight denim (from curtains that used to hang in my son's room) and one in the red cord.  I'll post them when I get finished with them.

Here's the black one:

The pattern is very easy, although I modified the size just a little, making it narrower at the waist.  It took about two hours for me so if you're looking for a great skirt that goes together pretty easily, look at this one.  It's on the burda style website under patterns.

Cutie pie not included!

Oooh, that skirt has ME written all over it.  I love the swooshiness of it!

Is your skirt lined?  I downloaded the pattern, but I've never made a lined skirt, so I chickened out!

It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye; then hey, free eyeball!

Yeah, I just lined it with the same black cotton because I had so much of it.  The pattern really does go together easily so give it a try!  Good luck! Grin
