Well, the original plan was to wear it under a longer jacket anyway...when I get the jacket finished I'll wear the skirt with it in the photo and we'll see how that looks...thanks for all the comments!

Thanks for the multi-review of this skirt. They all look different enough that Loes herself might not recognize them.

lisa, i think the skirt looks great on you, and i think your flower on the top idea will make it look even more age-appropriate and fashionable at the same time. i always enjoy your re-reviews of patterns you own -- you are an innovator!

I confess, I think the lavender one is a bit young looking on you. Some of the other ones work better for you, I think.

LOL, thanks, Ladies, for the encouragement! Actually, it's not my family that has me thinking I might pass this on to DD; the skirt is a little edgier than I'm used to and I'll have to adjust a bit and -- this time, anyway -- I was wondering if maybe they were right. I intend to wear it at least a couple of times... at least w/a longer jacket w/the flower pinned to it instead of the skirt... That should silence the nasty little voice whipsering 'Mutton dressed as lamb! ' ;)

Lisa, the latest version looks smashing. If you're comfortable wearing it, you should keep it. Dress for yourself, not your family. :)

I think it's just darling! You may have to share it with your DD, but if you want to wear it, I say go for it, it's very cute on you.

Lisa, I LOVE the lavender skirt! It is fantastic. No, I don't think you should pass this on to DD. It looks wonderful on you, and as long as you feel great wearing, I think you should keep it.

You are so creative! The experiment really worked out - that is a cute skirt.

I agree with the other ladies.Both skirts are very nice on you.The Long Bolero compliments the short skirt superbly.

Love the skirt(s) and the review(s)! I can stand the update! The math looks a bit intimidating and I'm good at math! Nice to see you overcome all obstacles in the original skirts. I like all versions.

Thanks, Ladies! Linda, I didn't line the was less 'sheer' than most burnouts (it even says on the EOS site that it wouldn't need to be lined)

Lisa, your new skirt is beautiful and you look beautiful in it! Keep up the good work.

Very nice skirt. I really must add this skirt pattern to my stash. I love the longer length.

Lisa, your new skirt looks so great on you!

Lisa, did you line the burnout? If so what did you use. I have some burnout velvet from ages ago and now I am inspired to try it with this pattern. I love this pattern.

Your new outfit is very becoming, Lisa, and the skirt length looks great!

Lisa, very pretty on you. I also got some of that velvet (in brown) with the intention of making this skirt. I am so glad that you reviewed this.

I feel kinda bad posting the whole boatload at once and flooding the active page, but we had two rolls developed...oh, for a digital camera! Thanks for your kind words, ladies! I had a great piece of fabric to use!

Lisa, you look adorable in this outfit! Thanks for taking the time to post pics of all your fun creations

This looks so good! I like the length of the skirt and the depth of the flounce. Nice boots too.
AnneM said... (12/11/02 9:05 AM) Reply
And your skirt looks great as well as sounds great. Very nice style.

Lisa, your skirt sounds great! I'm so glad that fall will be here soon (at least I hope) so that I can wear my wool jersey version.
