What a knockout of an outfit! You did a great job of matching fabric to pattern--and how nice if you add a jacket.

Cynthia you are a mind reader. I was just thinking how nice it would be if I had some more fabric to make a cute cardigan as well, but unfortunately no more fabric :-(
4/3/02 10:47 PM
An absolutely perfect outfit. It looks wonderful and I'll bet your DH loves it, too. Just like the top - the skirt is much prettier than the pattern envelope illustration. Great job, Deepika!
4/3/02 11:28 PM
Deepika, this is just a really beautiful outfit you've made. That color fabric is fabulous on you!
4/3/02 11:55 PM
Looks like this fabric worked out really well! I'm glad you got it. The outfit looks fabulous.
4/4/02 0:44 AM
beautiful outfit, I have been eyeing this pattern - will have to take the plunge. It looks incredible on you
4/4/02 0:44 AM
Just gorgeous and a great job!! Hope you have somewhere fun to wear it!!
4/4/02 1:13 AM
Thanks everyone. Now you all have to try this for yourself to see how easy it is :-) Elizabeth, we'll have to go fabric shopping again sometime. I am glad I bought this fabric.
4/4/02 1:23 AM
All I can say is WOW! What a beautiful outfit. As I said before, this color is so lovely with your skintone. :-)
4/4/02 1:46 AM
Deepika, you look marvelous, simply marvelous in that outfit! You are justifiabley pleased with your result! I cannot believe what a short time you have been sewing...you've done a fabulous job of marrying fabric color and hand to pattern to you. Congratulations.

Deepika, this is a wonderful outfit! Instead of a jacket, what about a shawl or wrap in some sort of gauzy fabric like silk chiffon? If you know someone who knits, (or if you do!), a lacy knit wrap would look very nice for evening.
4/5/02 1:15 PM
I like the idea of a knit wrap! thanks Diane. My mom knits. What type of a yarn would she use? I will have to buy it here and send it to her. I guess just knit very loosely??
4/5/02 1:35 PM
i made one today :>) now i want one out of one of those geometric slinkies over at fabric.com! i took 5 inches off the length of the skirt, so the flounce bottom would stop just below my knee -- looks cute and flirty!
4/13/02 3:28 AM
i'm thinking of pegging the skirt down a size for my next one. i'd use the large top part of the skirt, but peg it down to a medium at the bottom of the skirt and put on a medium flounce. i thought it might be more slimming (not that the present version adds to my weight) -- what do you think? good idea or not? thanks!
4/13/02 3:38 AM
Karen, I found the skirt pretty fitted. I used size small according to my hip size and it does not have too much ease.
4/13/02 11:02 AM
I just completed this skirt (view B) from a very thin cotton lycra.I am tall and love wearing longer style skirts. Since there is not much ease in this skirt, I cut between med and large(I usually make med) and am very happy with the fit. I would love to make the top, but my arms have not seen sunshine since I was 10! I did make KS3036 view C (top with cowl neckline) but the collar seemed overwhelming and I have a long neck.I chose this pattern because it was cheaper than Loes Hinse comparable skirt pattern and knit would give more give because of my longer stride when walking.

What a goodlooking outfit, and the colour suits you fine, congratulations! you really have developed with your sewing.
6/29/02 5:50 AM
Rita, I am also thinking of making the skirt in a longer version. Even though I did make the top but I can't wear it in 'everyday' use because it looks too dressy... and now I can't find this fabric so basically I wear the skirt with a white top. What other color would go with this skirt? Any ideas. Thanks for the kind words Marita, Yes I have learnt a lot and sewing is so much fun!
6/29/02 10:01 AM
Probably any colour suits you Deepika, but here are few things to consider:nothing too bright, black and white are too obvious(boring), too bold prints, I should say that something very close to the colour of these garments, a little darker or little lighter and I would wear the lighter part on top, this sounds like advice to a bigger person but I think that a monochromatic colouring is usually the classiest. If you like beige or cafe a lait or some colour in the brown hue might also be good and if you vant to wear somethig totally different in colour, I would make it bottomhalf in longer length.We only have one inch difference in hight and I haven't allways been this big, so this is kind of familiar to me, you really look smashing!
6/29/02 10:57 AM
I'm kind of interested in trying this skirt in a woven rayon. Think it would work? I mean, that Loes Hinse swing skirt is similar--I guess I'm wondering if I'd be able to walk if I used the longer version...
7/13/02 10:42 PM
Skymom, I am sure it would work in woven also. Also it has side slits in the flounce which I omitted but you can put them in the longer version. I do think that it needs to be one size bigger for wovens cause I found it has very little ease. I am also planning to make this in woven, let me know how it works for you.
7/13/02 11:42 PM
Thanks, Deepika. I will keep you posted. I've got a some pretty, semi-sheer georgette that calls out to be a skirt, but I didn't want to do a bias cut as I fear it will stretch all out of whack. This would give me the flirty hem look I want without that problem. WIll need to find a good lining,though, or even a separate slip.
7/17/02 11:14 AM
Deepika - Va-Va-VA-VOOM!!! You look fantastic!
3/29/04 8:07 PM
How chic you look! The flounce skirts are so flirty and feminine. I want to make more too - BTW I love the black and white!
3/29/04 8:08 PM
Very cute skirt. Looks great on you. I also love the original outfit. Just beautiful.
3/29/04 9:02 PM
Your skirt looks very nice. Thanks for adding the lining tips.
3/29/04 9:25 PM
I like the longer flounce, too! It gives it a different, fun look!
11/28/04 10:00 AM
Only one of these in a wardrobe? I have three and can tell you they are perfect for dancing--total freedom of movement. My latest is in a polka-dot rayon/lycra and looks very dramatic doing a tango! :))
11/28/04 9:14 PM
Very elegant - that skirt really is flattering on you!
11/28/04 10:14 PM
This looks fantastic! Can't remember the exact colors, but does it by any chance coordinate with the mosaic c/l from B & J?
11/29/04 8:23 AM
Amanda, as a matter of fact, I've cut out the mosaic print to make the burda drape neck top to go with this skirt :) Thanks everyone for such nice comments. This has got to be the most used pattern in my stash!
11/29/04 3:20 PM
Another lovely skirt. I'm with edube. I have a half dozen of the LH swing skirt made up, which seems almost identical to this skirt.
11/30/04 5:28 AM
It matches your shoes perfectly! It has almost a vintage look to it--like it a LOT!
11/30/04 7:58 AM
Wow, I missed this review before! Glad to see I inspired you, Deepika :) Isn't this a fabulous skirt to twirl in? Great review of all your versions from this pattern.
2/15/05 2:02 AM
Thank you for sharing the information on lining the skirt and then encasing the elastic. I did NOT do this yesterday on a skirt I made--and the waistband is SO bulky. This method sounds SO much better. You look lovely in your skirts. I have decided to buy this pattern. Every best wish to you. Carla
8/11/06 9:38 AM
Carla thanks for the compliment. I do love this pattern and all the skirts I've made from it.
8/12/06 8:37 AM
As someone with hips, I love see other curvy gals like myself enjoy straight knit skirts. Thanks!
