Very nice. Your fit looks great and those are seriously cute buttons. Thanks for the review of the moleskin--I'll have to add this to my list.

Duplicate post (why does it do this?)

I love the name of this skirt; it reminds me of the "banana seat" bicycles we used to ride as kids. Your skirt turned out fabulous. Thanks for the "heads up" about the piecing. I'm sure you'll save someone from ripping it out and starting over.

Here's the line drawing link:,1270777-1000019-1252645-1252651-1252750-1252905,deDE.html I have not considered making this skirt, but I might now. Thanks for the review.

Beautiful ! I've often looked at the line drawing for this skirt and thought I will make this one day..your review has prompted me to try this one too.

This is your first WOF pattern? WOW! You did a fantastic job. These patterns are a bit more work to prepare, but aren't the results gorgeous? Your skirt is just beautiful and I'll have to look this up and maybe give it a try. I have just the perfect lightweight rose colored wool...

hi :) I've also sewn this pattern, twice -- once for me in navy blue wool, and once for my sister in dark pink wool...I ALSO had a problem with the closure, both times, there ended up a ripple at the bottom (on the inside) that I couldn't really fix. So I think that it is the pattern, not you! You are right, no one can see this little ripple anyway, the skirt fits perfectly. if someone can figure out a trick to avoid the ripple...let us know! ;)
