You did a great job on all your skirts. This pattern has been in my stash for a long time and after seeing how nice your skirts came out, I think it's time to give it a try.

Love this version- if I had a pattern that looked as awesome on me as this does on you I'd be cranking them out too! Love the blue with the black top & tights too- very bold, looks good!

I love all your iterations of this skirt, perhaps especially the ruffled back pink one (and the outfits it's a part of!). Nice work and great review, as always!

Very flattering! I'm in awe of everything you've been sewing lately.

Three really great looks--and each so different! Nice job! (BTW, am I right that you had on your website that you were thinking about making the Vogue 8520 coat? If so, is that one still in your future? I am hoping for inspiration...)

Great job on your various iterations of this skirt. Neat idea on the boucle. You will have to update us on how well it wears for you.

Too cute. I have this pattern - not sure why I've never gotten to it. I love how different all your versions are.

I love how you changed this pattern up in so many interesting ways. The frayed hem is amazing and your fitting skills are so refined. As usual, great job!

I made this up when I first started sewing (I think I was a size 6 back then too - no longer, sadly) and it is definitely a winner.

Very nice. I like all your variations - especially the one with the ruffle. I have this pattern and it just might make my wardrobe debut this spring.

I love all of the them. The pink one with the pink and grey hoses is wonderful. The frayed hem one seams gorgeous as well. One pattern 100 versions ! Great review and work.

What a darling pattern -- I love all your versions. I've had this pattern forever, but have never tried it.

I love it in the blue version especially. And I love your black boatneck top.
