I decided to cut my 'fountains upside down' - I liked them better that way. I altered he Burda pattern slightly by not allowing the button flap to open. This allowed me to insert the piping more easily. Pure laziness!
I'm happy with the way it turned out. Matching the pattern was quite difficult and I needed extra fabric to do it. I'm planning to wear this with a bright red silk blouse and my cropped black leather jacket while the weather is cooler. I'm wearing this in the photo, but It didn't quite work out. I can see why everyone is making this skirt - its fairly quick and looks great in a range of fabrics and weights. I will make another one for summer in linen.
