I adore your skirt. I have this pattern, but hesitated to make it because of the short length and the waist/hip fullness. I really like how your skirt fits you hips and waist without any excess fullness. It is most flattering. I'm not sure I fully understand the cutting out/folding procedure, but I have your directions bookmarked. I'll spend some time unlocking your directions. Again, great skirt.

That turned out so nice, the longer length looks great.

Mary, I like your skirt better than what's on the envelope! You convinced me to make this!

Elizabeth, the last link in my review will lead you to pictures of how I lengthened the skirt.

I really like this in the longer length. Does the pattern include instructions for the longer length or did you improvise it? Love the look!

You've been sewing up a storm, I see! I like your longer version of this skirt better than the one on the pattern! I agree wtih you on the pocket closure too. Remember when those were real popular years ago? Seemed like all the pants had a closure at the side pocket. Hated it then, hate it now -- ha! Great looking skirt you achieved here. :o)

I love this. It is so trendy and looks wonderful on you, much better than the pattern envelope!
