Love your skirt, and thank you for a great review and for including sizing benchmarks. Now I'm inspired to actually trace off the pattern!

Very cute skirt, I really think the grosgrain makes the skirt. Thanks for the info on the sizing - makes sense that the book comes with sizes that are more RTW, since the book may be some people's first experience with patterns and sewing. Don't want them to have "size shock" when they see pattern sizing!

I LOVE the vertical ribbon detail down the front. I hope you don't mind if I "borrow" it. Cute, cute skirt.

Glad to see this review! I've been looking through my pattern stash for an a-line skirt and I just got this book. This pattern looks like a winner and I love the trim you added on yours.

Cute skirt! I'm just tracing the shirt pattern in the book. I agree that this is a great resource. So many ideas.

Wonderful review giving lots of ideas for modifications. I have a favorite Aline skirt pattern I use for my DD whenever the mood strikes to whip something up for her. It has seen several variations. Great skirt I'm sure you will enjoy wearing often.
