So pretty! I especially like your hem treatment. I'm anxious to try that myself. And the HAND LOTION idea -- man, do I need THAT! My middle name is STATIC.

Thanks, helpful review. I'm in the process of making the jacket, and the notches for the lower back/peplum are way off, as well. Hmm, what's up with Vogue?

Nice skirt and great review! I can't wait to see your jacket.

Lovely finish on the hem and nice job on the skirt, although I agree, it's too big. I'd be really leary of the jacket pattern with all those errors in the skirt - I'd be really tempted to write to Vogue and let them know - not that they are very responsive to that sort of mail.

Nice skirt. Thanks for the heads up on the pattern's shortcomings.

Thanks ladies! Grammy Gin, I suppose it took me about 5 hours to make - maybe a bit longer.

Great review & beautiful workmanship. The skirt looks perfect on you with both ensembles. Did you mention how long it took you to make your skirt?

Sounds like Vogue needs some proof-readers. Nevertheless, nice skirt! I hope you are planning on the jacket too...

I love the lines in the back of the skirt. Excellent review - thanks for the heads up on the markings. And the hem technique - quite nice.

Love the skirt and the details but see why you are frustrated with the instructions. Almost looks like they were taking shortcuts by using pieces from another design :)
