I'm just about to start on that pattern, thank you for the review! Your skirt looks absolutely fantastic! I'll check the pattern measurements vs my own body measurements, I'm glad to know it runs a bit big...

Wow. I never would have selected this pattern based on the magazine photo. But yours looks fantastic!

Very cute, especially with the boots. They should put you on the photo for this pattern. :o)

Wow!! Growl!! You knock that "stay-at-home-mom" stereotype out of the water!! Your children have a COOL Mom!! And, Melissa, YOU should have modeled for this pattern!

Looks great, Melissa. Especially with those boots. Another winner from Ottobre that I must try...

That animal print corduroy makes the skirt and I love how it goes with your boots. Ottobre's model looks frumpy and you look fabulous.

Perfect combination of fabric and pattern! Isn't it nice to have a pattern company that works this well for you? You look fabulous in those boots, you should be on Ottobre magazines cover.

It looks perfect, and I agree with Marita. The Ottobre people owe you.

Thanks for reviewing this, I just traced it off this morning! I'm making mine into a summer skirt and wanted a pattern that used minimal fabric. Thanks for the heads up re sizing; I'll watch out for that.

Beautiful Melissa, great fabric choice too and they really should pay you somekind of "royalties" from Ottobre, LOL!!!!! Marita
