Corduroy Skirt. Pattern 136 Burda 5/2003

I love Burda magazine patterns… for their fit, style, easy instructions, and it is easy to make fit adjustments if needed.

I like to change some of the design details and to use the same pattern with a variety of fabrics. One of the examples of those mash-ups is a chiffon skirt Burda pattern (5/2003, 136). I decided to make this skirt from corduroy fabric and without lining.

I am also a member of the inspirational Burda Style community.
