Great save indeed! Wonderful inspiration for the dress at the beginning, though. Maybe there is a way you can tweak the remnants of the top in to something workable?

A very nice salvage job. A peasant skirt is not easy because of the tiers, but yours turned out very nice. Also, the twist top matches perfectly.

Very nice. Great way to salvage a wadder. You are so creative.

You should be very proud of how it turned out. What a great save. Looks great with the top.

Wow! What a great save! I was sitting here wondering why how I missed such a fabulous skirt in WOF - now I know!

Great save! It looks terrific as a skirt. I wonder if the problem w the dress was really the fabric........... I think partly the design.

This might just win the "Patternreview Save of the Year" award, Kay. If Deepika actually runs such a contest, you'll get my vote! :-) The skirt turned out great, and the crocheted trim is a stroke of genius. You're a Boho Babe all the way in this outfit!

Excellent save, Pharmercoon. The skirt looks great with that trim.

Very clever way to use this pattern, your skirt turned out cute. I too tried this pattern, also sucked in by the description. I only made the top half, thinking it would make a cute top, well, it was so horrible that I didn't even take a picture! I used a semi-drapey, rayon, twill so I don't know if your fabric choice made that much of a difference. My DH said it looked like I was wearing a shower curtain...gotta love that honesty!

The skirt with the trim is gorgeous. I was looking at this pattern and wondering... But if it looks like that on your lovely figure, I'll be glad to give it a pass. But the skirt is really very pretty.

What a terrific save! Your original sketch looks so delightful....who would have thought it would look so different in reality.
