Gorgeous skirt, must get this pattern!!! So happy to see a review and that it was a simple sew, fabric hog notwithstanding! Frozensouth, a border print wouldn't work with this pattern as it is a circle skirt. You could probably make a band in a different fabric and attach it to the hem. That would be cute.

Thanks for the fabric hog warning, but it looks like it's worth it; very flattering.

Beautiful skirt! Love the colour :) 6 yards, and it was barely enough? Wow, it *is* a fabric hog! ;)

It looks great on you. I think a border print would be fun too. Thanks for the review, I am going to put it on my list of I WANT patterns.
