Wow, love those stripes! Your skirt looks absolutely gorgeous. Maybe I'll have to get this one.

Such a cool pattern, espescially for the stripes how you did it.

Seraphina, no I didn't make the top. That is a purchased one I've had a long time. I have pink fabric at the ready to make a top.

Ann, love the outfit. Did you make the top as well? If so, which pattern did you use?

MaryBeth, I think the skirt is flattering to the hip and doesn't make me look shorter. I'm not sure I like the affect of the stripes curving over my tummy though.

What a cool way to do pinstripes! Your skirt is inspirational - this is something even I could do!

Ooohh, Ann, I love this pattern and especially the fabric you've used. I'd like to know more about the effect of the stripes meeting at the lower hip: does it seem to draw the eye to that point and make a short person shorter? Or is it more subtle than that? It's hard to tell from a photo and your lovely figure how those luscious design features balance out with figure/proportions so I'd love to hear what you think. I surely do like it on you!

This pattern is definitely on my wish list! Yours looks fabulous! The bias stripes really make this one fun and unique. Beautiful!
