BurdaStyle 11/2015 - 105 Godet Skirt

Isn't it a great feeling when you choose a pattern from one of your Burda magazines only to find that at some point in the past you had already traced it!

That might be part of it, but this skirt is currently my favourite thing and someone may have to stop me making a whole wardrobe of them.

11/2015 - 105




To be honest I'm not completely sold on the colour block version, but the cut is lovely - somewhat fitted in the waist and hips and then all swishy from there down.  It will be perfect for our hot summer weather, not that I have been waiting to wear it - it's great for spring too with a casual denim jacket.

This one is in a very soft cotton floral print.  I love the colours in this and although I'm wearing it with an obvious black knit top here, it will work well with khaki, raspberry and cream so I'll be looking out for fabric for some coordinating pieces.


Getting the seams to meet perfectly at a point is hard, but fortunately the print covers a multitude of sins.  If you're doing the colour block version some serious marking and basting will be needed.

  1. This is a lovely pattern, but I'm with you on the colourblock version. Your print version is much nicer.

  3. Great version. I bet it would look amazing at maxi skirt length too.

  8. Nice! Love the pairing of fabric and pattern. Isn’t it great how well funky prints hide all manner of slapdash sewing sins?

  9. I made this skirt in a black wool several years ago and really liked the flippy silhouette. I had a problem with rippling on the bias cut seams on the front. Your printed version looks great.
