I have this pattern but I haven't tried it yet. I like all three of your skirts and I especially think that the 4-gore skirt with no side seam is very flattering on you. Thanks for your review.

Very pretty--I've got this pattern, but haven't made it up yet. It seems to be a very versatile, fun skirt, plus easy to make.

19 other reviews, and I never realized it doesn't have a side seam. Nice touch. Very pretty skirt.

Beautiful skirt! I too like that there's no side seam. Very smooth.

thanks Ruthie. I was out and about today. The godette pattern piece looks like a triangle with a slightly curved bottom. It gives a bit more walking room and swishiness

Thanks. Ruthie!

The godette (or godet) is a wedge shaped piece inserted here in the hemline to make the skirt flare out more. They are usually used in skirts though I have used them in pants too.

This is soo pretty! You picked great fabric! It matches the style perfectly! Thanks for this great review of a great wardrobe builder!

Thank you for the very informative critique of this pattern. Your skirt has lovely lines. Tell me, just what is a godette? There are lots of terms on these pages that escape me. Guess I really need a good dressmaking book!

Very pretty skirt - have this pattern but not used yet so your points will be well taken - very helpful review.

Thanks for the info about no side seams on the 4-gore skirt. You look all ready for spring in yours!

This looks better than the one I made! I thnk maybe a cut mine a bit large and my fabric did not drape very well.
