I have been sewing garments from a piece of fabric I bought in LA at Michael Levines on my birthday. It is a wool/synthetic/lycra blend suiting and has made nice garments. This skirt is from Burda 03/2006 style #115 in a size 38. However, I had to resew the side seams letting the skirt out a bit as it was tight! Here is my photo--not great, but you get the idea :>) I like the belt made from doubled ribbon and the belt loop details.
