I totally understand your comment about elastic waists, but it is a very pretty skirt. It drapes so beautifully!

Anne, it looks great with the top out! No hint of an elastic waist.

That is such a pretty skirt. Even with the elastic waist it looks fantastic on you! -Ann

Thanks, everyone. There are "drag lines" that don't show up very well in the picture - or in real life, for that matter, with the dark fabric. Plus being worn below the waist helps. I really like the style, so if I get adventurous I might convert it to a zippered waist by tapering & darting the top. But there are so many patterns, so little time!

Pretty skirt on you, Anne! The cut is very flattering. You've been sewing up a storm lately.

The bias cut hangs beautifully, and it is a perfect length on you. I know what you mean about elastic waists though. Still, this one doesn't appear to bunch at all so your elastic sandwich must have helped.

I bought this same pattern last summer! I have not been very enthusiastic about making it, though - due to the "elastic waist", as you mentioned in your GREAT review. The skirt looks fantastic on you. However, after reading you review, and considering how petite and short waisted I am, I think I will pass on this pattern. Don't get me wrong - your skirt looks very cute, and your lining solution is ingenious! But... I've been thinking about that "elastic waist" - and I highly agree with your summation about those! Thank you so much for the great review!

A very flatering skirt, Anne. No reason you couldn't sew it onto a waistband and add a zipper.

Beautiful. I have yet to tackle bias with any great confidence - your outfit makes me thing I can - I should!!

Very, very pretty outfit. Sometimes the fabrics are right to sneak in as they do. The skirt is lovely.
