Adorable skirt. Love the semicircular flare. Excellent top stitching. I would like to make this for DD!

Bravo! It's absolutely adorable, and now you have no reason at all not to make jeans!

What a great skirt and you are right, fits you to a T. Love the contrast facing. Also love your fingerless gloves, did you make those too? Can't wait to see your jeans.

This is a great little skirt and yours look great - I think it is funny that on three different points of the earth, their could be (at least) 3 ladies wearing very similar denim skirts!

Very snazzy. The top stitching and the flare in the back are especially good.

Such a fab looking skirt, Deepika! Very nice work on the topstitching!

AuntieShel, yes I did knit those fingerless gloves. I use them a lot! Everyone, thanks so much for the kind words. And guess what I've been up to? I am more than half way done with my jeans! I hope to finish them tomorrow. Sewing this skirt was a really good idea as a practice for jeans.

Really really cute and so great on you (great fingerless mittens too). So, if I ever get my regular shape again, I will make one like this!

What a cute skirt! Love the flounce at the back and the contrast fabric. Looks like plenty of fun wearing this. Enjoy!

I love, love, love that you made it jeans-like, including the mustard-coloured topstitching and buttonhole. This looks superb on you.
