Cute skirt. It has a very nice slow. It would be neat to see this magazine (I would also be on the upper edge of the range with my hips).

Love the skirt and all the photos Minieme. As I was reading I thought, it is very similar to a Burda WOF one!

Beautiful drape on this skirt. It must be very comfortable and fun to wear. Interesting pattern.

I had a couple of similar skirts in the 70's and loved them, especially the way they moved when I walked, and how easy they were to sew. This one looks great on you!

Lovely Minieme! I loved this skirt when I saw it in reality on the day of our fabshophop..the fabric choice makes it extra special. Edited to add : I have made McCall 4161 which is very similar, just one piece and it is one of my favourite skirts. There are eight (8) on ebay USA ranging in size from 4 to 18 and two (2) on ebay Aust, for anyone interested in this style.

Great skirt, I've been saving a pattern from the UK magazine 'Prima' which has a very similar style. I tried some on in the shops here in this same style but to go round my hips they were all far too large on the waist, I suppose if I make my own I can taper each panel at the waist so it would fit better.

When I saw this skirt in real life at Minieme's house I loved it, even though it wasn't finished then. Looks great girl! Guess your assistant is a great help too.

What a great skirt. I'm going to take a look at the BWOF one now.

Yes Sue, I usually make size 12 in the big 4, it just fits me because of the stretch in the fabric. I also used the longer length.
