I have made this skirt several times and it's a great fast wardrobe builder. It's easy to add a back slit to any skirt and I have done it to this one for some fabrics. I have also shortened the pattern to knee length and added about 1 inch to the bottom width (front and back pattern pieces) to make it a little swingier and with a drapey knit this is a fun look too. I love this pattern and also the pencil skirt (but here I have to wear a top long enough to cover the tummy area...happy holidays...cheryl

Thank you for the nice comments! Tina, the top is viewB of the Loes Hinse Cowl Top pattern. I wrote a review for it with pictures links in the text:

Katharin, great picture. Did you make the top you're wearing, as well? If so, details! :) (Still haven't had nerve to make skirt!)

Katharin, that skirt lookes lovely! I rated your review very helpful cause that last tip you added about not being able to walk too comfortably in this skirt is going to be very valuable. Thanks! Does this meant that since I don't have to walk a lot I have to get this pattern! sigh :-)

Very nice skirt, Katharin. Too bad it's not good for walking a lot. I also walk a lot so I probably won't be buying this pattern.

Katharin, I can't wait to see your picture - the skirt sounds very flattering. I have posted in the Expert Forum how to turn inside and outside corners on the serger - I hope it helps you.

I just ordered this one and found your review very helpful. I'm not the most adept at knits, YET (because I love them) ... thanks for the great review. Can't wait to see your pix!
