When I got the fabric for my bombshell bodice, I also picked up some fabric to make a skirt.  It was an amazing novelty sewing print by Suzuko Koseki for Yuwa.  I have to say, I am absolutely in love with the feel of this Japanese fabric.

I decided to download the Linda Skirt pattern from Burda Style as a starting point for this paneled 3/4 circle skirt.  Because I chose to make the skirt with a 44″ wide fabric, I made some adjustments to the pattern and went with 3 panels instead of 2 large panels.  It gives me a front center panel and 2 side/back panels with a seam down the back.

I really liked the design of the skirt, but the downloadable pattern was almost impossible to follow.  It kept referring to directions printed on the package – not helpful.  I would however, recommend the pattern if you can purchase it in the store.

Even though it’s not perfect, I’m pretty proud of it.  It’s my first lined skirt.


It hits me just below the knees, which is a great length for spring.  And the best part…. it’s super fun to spin in.
