Really beautiful skirt! Thank you so much for all of your detailed information while constructing this pattern. I am thinking of tackling it in the near future. I hope to achieve a nice result such as yours!

Hi sewingkay. I've made the same alterations to my pattern and ended up with a big angle on the CF line. What's the best way to then place this piece on the fold? Thanks

Beautiful fit! Thanks for the tips on adjusting. I've just finished my muslin and also have excess bulk in the front and dislike the darts but I'll follow your lead and hopefully get a better result.

Your skirt looks amazing on you, the fit is so perfect!! I would never have known how to make this fit, given the problems you encountered with the fit of your muslin. And the directions are crazy...I don't understand Vogue sometimes, like they are trying to make things more difficult than they need to be. Your perseverance is awesome and you have a gorgeous skirt!!!

I just love it on you and wanted to get the pattern right away but after reading your review I think I need to be a sewing Lawyer which I'm not. You did wonders figuring everything out because it looks perfect :)
