Now I want a crisp white shirt.
These photos show the shape of the skirt a little better. The design is interesting, as in there are no side seams. The outer shell of the skirt is cut as two sides that overlap in the front. The skirt has what Burda is calling an underskirt, which is to be cut from the fashion fabric. I substituted stretch lining instead, and in hindsight I wouldn't have shortened it by 2 inches. There isn't any easy way to anchor it to the outer shell, which doesn't have side seams, so it rides up a bit.
|This is the only seam in the outer shell.|
|Underskirt. It's not going to be seen, and having it 2" longer would have been good.|
