Burda World Of Fashion- Tulip Pleat Skirt

Salwa made one of Tessuti's more popular cotton striped fabrics into this fabulous pleat style skirt . This is 100% Cotton Navy 'Dapper Chap'- this cotton is almost like a seer sucker but with a thicker and more defined stripe. It's a fabulous base cloth and has been used in pants, jackets and dresses.

The pattern Salwa used is from a vintage Burda Magazine Feb 1989. But it is very similar to skirt pattern 116 found in BWOF Magazine 09/2007



Salwa has been sewing up a storm since her daughter Nancy started working at Tessuti Fabrics Chatswood. Nancy left a couple of years ago - to follow her dream but Salwa has stayed and become a regular customer at all our stores and makes some wonderful creations. I will be sure to feature more of her wares.


  1. that skirt pattern is also quite similar to the Marie skirt that can be downloaded for free from the Burdastyle site.

  2. Hi- just found your blog. Enjoying the reading.

  3. I know tulip skirts are very popular, but I'm not really sure how to wear them. I love the fabric you chose to make this one.
