I'm making this in red/black/white geometric patterned ?herringbone polyviscose and girls in my sewing class admired the style. How exciting to come home and see it on PR. I adjusted it for a CB seam and invisible zip and used a facing, not a waistband. I almost left the hem serged too, maybe next time...

I have just reviewed this skirt as well. Mine is completely different. Love yours!! I think I will need to make it up now in something more like yours.

Gorgeous!! The skirt looks really good on you. I've seen the serged hem treatment (in green thread) on a brown-plaid Etro suit and liked it so much that I tore the photo out of my magazine to save. Your skirt hangs so nicely -- you might want to consider leaving it as is.

Your skirt looks great. Funny, I didn't notice the serged hem until you mentioned it. I think it looks fine as is.

What a nice way to feminize a masculine fabric: perfect for ladies work wear. It fits you well, too. Great work.

I wasn't too wild about this pattern in the magazine, because their seams looked ugly and wavy to me (I'm one to talk! lol) but yours is gorgeous and VERY well-done. I might have to reconsider it.

Yes, it's lovely and the serged hem is great. I totally support you, if you decide not to finish the hem. :)
