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

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

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

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

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.
