Just wanted to say how much better your skirt looks than the one on Loes' website!

Mudcat, thanks for the great photo. I love the way the pleats drape in your fabric. I was worried about how they would look on a real person.

Beautiful skirt! Reighly has it right when she says that photo sells the pattern. You should get a commission from Loes. ;)

Alice, I love your skirt and the fabric is lovely. Thanks for sharing your plans to go down a size. I have the pattern in my hot little hand, and I plan to make it today, so I'll flat pattern measure to see if I want to go down a size, too.

Nice skirt Alice! Very interesting fabric, too! It looks better than the one on the pattern envelope.

I dismissed this pattern as boring until I saw your skirt-very nice. KS 3036 has a good proportion for this skirt style, because it is short and doesn't hide the pleats.

Okay, I made a new photo with me wearing it and added a fabric swatch (see the bottom of the review). By the way, thanks for all the compliments on the skirt. :)

Sherril, I'm not sure about a top yet...probably something black although the Kwik Sew 3036 Knit top I just made in a sage color actually looks good with the skirt. But I don't think the shirt is nice enough to go with it. I'll try to get the SO to take a photo with me in it tomorrow.

Cute skirt. Now I'll have to think about getting this pattern too. What top do you plan to wear it with? I would love to see you model the outfit. I find it quite helpful to see actual people in their clothes instead of on the hanger.

My reaction to your photo was similar to Peggy's. Your skirt really sells this pattern!

Great skirt - it looks better than the one on the pattern envelope. Maybe I need this pattern afterall!

What a pretty skirt! I can't wait to make this pattern up - I think I like the view you chose best.
