What a fabulous skirt! I love your embellishment, just right. I'm glad you redid the back. On the earlier photos I thought the skirt didn't fit and you couldn't get the zipper all the way up. Once you redid it it looked like a design detail.

Nice skirt, great details. You did a nice job revising that back-split, and your experience & review will forwarn others to watch for it.

SO beautiful! The felting and beadwork really take it up a notch. Nice work!

This is terrific - this wouldn't look out of place in some designers show.

I am going to rip out the back today and redo the zipper and try to close up more of the split. I'll post pictures when I get it done. Thanks for all the nice comments!

That's fabulous! I bought all the supplies for needle felting several years ago but haven't actually gotten around to trying it. You are inspiring me!

Your skirt is beautiful. The lines of the skirt are nice and I like how you highlighted them with your piping and embroidery.

Very pretty skirt. I've never noticed this pattern.

thanks for all the pix. It is hard to get clarity on the darker fabrics--so the extra pix helped a lot. You've got a great figure and yes--I agree with you--that split above the waistline is particularly big. The Vogue line drawing doesn't seem to show it to be such a big split. Ugh...figuring these things out is what makes sharing pattern reviews so helpful. I've bought the pattern a while ago but never sewed it up. Your decorating/additional beading was very inventive. Nice job all around.
