Great looking skirt. I have made this years ago! Maybe I should have another go at it....I have plenty of knits. Your looks really nice!

yes, popoagie, I think we might be similar in frame. I generally use a 33 inch inseam for pants, and I'm 5' 8.5" tall.

Irina, I usually lengthen bottoms by 2-4 inches as well. I think our up and down proportions are similar. Do you mind telling how tall you are? I'm 5'7" with 33" inseams on straight legged jeans (longer on dress pants). My minimum lengthening is usually two inches as well.

Irina, thanks for the warning about the upside down piece. I can see why it happened. I am being very careful with mine because of your advice. Thanks so much for sharing this review. Carla

Beautiful! Glad to hear you didn't have to struggle with the buttermilk. I wonder if the skirt is difficult to walk in, or step up into an SUV in...Your success with this pattern makes me want to try it out!

Fabulous skirt. I've now made the LH flounce three times, and I wear them out in the summer, but there is something about your skirt that looks different: is the flounce tighter? Based on your great success, I may buy this pattern and try it on a knit: all three of my LH's are woven. Wonderful style for you.

That skirt is a perfect fit. You did a great job.

Lee Anne -- you are right that this skirt has less waist ease than the LH swing skirt. It has a much more pronounced hip curve. For knits this works very well and reduces bunching at the waist. It wouldn't work so well with a woven.

This is your style for certain! Do you think there is less ease in the waist than the Loes Hinse swing skirt?

Your skirt looks great on you. Though I don't own a Bernina but Viking your mirror image blind hem stitch is a great idea and will give it try.

Pretty skirt and fabric. I too love this skirt and have made it up a couple of times.

The skirt is nice. Very flattering look on you. It's probably so long because Christine allowed for the shrinkage since she doesn't preshrink the cotton/lycra.

Great Skirt! I have this pattern but have never made it up because I always use the KS 3032 pattern. You have convinced me to try this one next time. Thanks for the tip on hemming, I'll try that too!

Good reminder to baste 1st. I really like that skirt on you.

jlg and Irene -- I like the proportion of this flounce and the fact that this skirt is slightly pegged -- it has a very nice hip curve. I will admit, however, that my LH swing skirt is too long and has too much ease. I bet if I downsized it and shortened it, I would like it better. In fact, I should try this on a too-large swing skirt hanging in my closet.

Your skirt looks great on you. Like Irene, I want to know what you like better about this skirt. I've not made this because I've made a bunch of the LH swing skirts, but it sounds like I may "need" this pattern also.

The skirt looks wonderful on you. Can you say why you like this skirt better than the LH swing skirt?

Yes, this skirt does fit you perfectly! You look great in it!

Isn't this just the best pattern? Glad you've turned out a skirt that is soooo wow!

Wow, you look just like the idealized drawings in this skirt.
