Mode Mondays - Bold Colour Pencil Skirts

I'm really loving pencil skirts at the moment, especially bold block colour ones - perhaps styled up a bit like Emma Pillsbury.

I'm on the look out for the perfect pencil skirt. I tried making one last year, but it was a disaster - and I'm not even sure why! But the last two Burda Style magazines have a plethora of gorgeous looking patterns:

From Burda 01-2011

Both from Burda 02-2011

Bonus for the skirt in the January issue - it is the 'Sewing Course', so a much more detailed explanation on the method. That's actually the main reason I bought that issue, as the other patterns weren't very inspiring for me (MORE harem pants?!! Why Burda, why?!!). I will definitely be following the sewing course for the first skirt and I have quite a stash of gorgeous fabrics that I want to make into pencil watch this space (er...I hope you are patient....!)


  1. Hi, I just discovered your blog! I also like pencil skirts and have two lined up for the next two or three months. I think these Burda styles are very cute - will have to check as well.

  2. Hi Marina!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and your sweet comment.Have you any pattern's in mind of your pencil skirts yet? And fabric? Can't wait to see how they turn out :)


Thank you so much for your comments - they really do make my day!
