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.

This looks so good! I like the length of the skirt and the depth of the flounce. Nice boots too.

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, 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.

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

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.

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

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)

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.

Lisa, you and the outfit do look smashing.

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

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

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.

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

Lisa Laree said...
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! ' ;)

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.

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!

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

Lisa Laree said...
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!
