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.

  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.
