Oh Debbie, this is so cute! I haven't made a skirt in years but I might have to do this one:-) Thanks for a very helpful and informative review.

I love your skirt, it is so well done (I like your topstitching). You inspire me to give a try to this pattern. Thanks for the great review.

Thanks for the review, Debbie -- terrific skirt! I love your version of the trim, top stitching & cargo pockets. I don't think I'd have the courage to try it if it hadn't been for this review, but maybe my rather large "back porch" won't seem as gargantuan as I'm afraid it would. (Dream on, Pat! (8^D)

I'm sold. I have to have this pattern. Your skirt is beautiful and as always, your review is great. Loved the link to the video.

I have this pattern in my stash, but I keep holding back thinking that it looks like a lot of work! Yours is rather inspiring, though, and I feel gently nudged towards my machine. :)

Great skirt, wonderful review & I agree that if you use fabrics from your stash, then this garment is indeed free!

Just a SUPER CUTE little skirt, Debbie. I was having trouble picturing it in "real life" until I saw yours. I love it! (Oh, and I have lots of FREE fabric, too.) :o)

Wowee! Cool skirt. Love your skirt back godet revision. And your topstitching is absolutely marvelous. (Guess maybe I should take on something like this and maybe my topstitching skills would improve! :o) ) Now that I've seen it on a real person, I don't have to imagine what the fit is really like. Thank you for such a superb and thorough review. Your pics are such a big help. OH--since I haven't sewn a dang thing for AGES, guess all of my fabric is free too. Thanks for explaining that!
