This outfit is really cute! I love the patterns you chose for the fabrics - they went well together. I think your outfit looks alot nicer than the one the model is wearing, so kudos for you for seeing past the "penguin suit" at it's possibilities!

Your skirt is great!!!!! And you look so slim, Are you sure you took size 44? '-) You say it looks like the photo on the pattern. No, is is MUCH better. It was so wise to combine too fabrics. I like the skirt so much, and I would definetly sew it myself but the size is not good for me.)

OOH! Your skirt looks better than the pattern picture. WHat a wonderful outfit! Wish I was tall enough to pull off a skirt like this. BTW the Marfy jacket is TDF.

Very distinctive and just lovely Liana. It really works with the blouse and jacket.

Gorgeous outfit! Your skirt looks totally 'wearable', whereas I didn't get that impression from the magazine photo. Great job!

very dramatic skirt, Liana, I could imagine it in Dupion silk for evening. Love your Marfy jacket too.

Wow, what a departure in style for you (and so successfully, I might add)! This is just so... Brigadoon. In a GOOD way, I mean. I love this on you!

Who knew that was such a cute skirt! You certainly couldn't tell from the BWOF photos. Lovely, inspiring work as always!

wow what a stylish outfit...I would have never given that pattern a second look but your outfit looks like you walked out of a fashion magazine.

I'll second the "WOW" and "You look like you stepped out of a fashion magazine." Great design details!

This is perfect on you. I like the fabric combos especially. You have the height and presence to carry it off. It works well with both the jacket and the blouse.

Liana, the more I think about this skirt, the more impressed I am. I thought it was a bit unwearable when I saw it in BWOF, but I love it! Thank you for posting a review!
