Very pretty skirt. I've got this pattern and can't wait to try it.

I've been looking at the reviews for this pattern; it seems like it would be particularly good for the slinky knit fabrics. Yours came out very nicely. I agree; there are definite advantages to a shorter height!

This is one of my all-time favorite patterns, too -- one reason being this terrific skirt! It looks good on us 5'12"-ers, also...

This is my next project, and I'm glad to get the sizing info. I measure right between M and L, so will move up. The ruffle-edge elastic is a great touch - your skirt looks great!

Very cute! The ruffle-edged elastic is a great idea, too. Now why don't I have this pattern?

Pretty skirt, Kirianth! I love the fabric, and I agree, being short has its advantages :oP Great review!(I just got this pattern, and I cant wait to try it!)

Kirianth, lovely skirt! Appreciate your 'can do' spirit on the fabric -- it's exactly the right length.

Great job, nice fabric. Thanks for the link and elastic idea.

great skirt! i usually make solid color skirts, and i need to stretch into fun patterns like yours. i relate to your concern about the 1/2 inch wide elastic with this pattern. i adapted it for 1 inch because A) i've got a giant roll of 1 inch and B) the 1/2 inch elastic wasn't strong enough for fabrics with much body to them.

Very pretty. The fabric is so soft and feminine looking.
