Sun and a lot of beautiful new fabric in my stash make me feel like sewing for myself. It`s a sewing storm going on those days. My head is full of ideas and inspiration, days would need more hours.

I`m blown away by this fabric. It`s such a nice quality. I found it at Petite Couture. Wendy has an amazing selection of fabrics in her shop. Sadly, the fabric I used is out of stock. She can`t reorder, it`s a pity.

Pattern is out of the Burda Style 09/2012 no. 134. It`s a design by the british fashion designer Matthew Williamson.

Smallest size is 36, I had to take in quite a bit to make it fit well. That`s why the side-parts do not line up exactly by the side seam. Too bad, but I can cope with it. I prefer a nice fit.

The fabric hides the back walking slit perfectly. But there is one, a nice and handy detail on a pencil skirt.

Side parts are the reverse of this gorgeous fabric. It provides a nice body shaping. Pockets make it comfy and casual. A new favorite!
