I love this skirt and your fabric choice! I've made this skirt a few times and have been disappointed that the flare at the bottom was not what was drawn. Your's looks adorable.

The skirt is great and you have fabulous personal style. When I grow up (I'm 50), I want to have this much verve and pizzaz.

LOVE the fabric, how fun! I almost couldn't find the whole you mentioned in your picture, no one will notice. Great job.

Quite the evil thought, but I love to hear that others still make a few mistakes. It makes me feel not so alone! :-) THe skirt looks great on you, and I feel sure that no one will ever notice the hole with that pattern. If they do you can say "darn! That must have just happened!" ;)

Oh, I love that fabric! What a bummer about the little hole, but your skirt turned out super cute.

Congrats on your first sewn garment! I really like the fabric. It looks great on you! It looks like the shorter version has less flare than the longer version - based on the drawings (this is hard to tell though). And, the way the model is standing, her leg pulls out the hem a bit so you can see the flare. You might compare the hem (flare section) of the short and long skirt pattern pieces. Then you could tell if there is more flare on the long version. If so, you could try adjusting the short version using the curves on the longer version near the hem. I hope that makes some sense. Again, congrats on a great skirt - can't wait for summer!

What a successful first project! Perfecting the fit will come with time. Until then, it looks like a stellar skirt to have for the summer.

Congratulations on your first review. This looks fine. As you can tell, each time you make something you learn something. Now you know you have to lengthen the back (I have the same problem there).

I am in awe! For a first garment you didn't pick the easiest thing and your results are awesome! I am looking forward to seeing what is next for you. Keep up the good work.

I think your skirt looks great, well done choosing just the right fabric for it too. I do wonder whether you needed to take it up 2" and where you took it from? - the hemline doesn't look as flared as it does in the pattern picture.

Yea your first garment! It looks great! I want to make some skirts for spring, the one's I see in the stores are just a tad too short (I'm tall) and skirts are so easy and so satisfying to make. Barb C
