Seaspur, you should try this again in another fabric. It's really a nice skirt and you're all set with tracing & fitting. Kristine, for the skirt hem, you can trim off the excess by leveling from the ground but I'm too chicken with scissors to try that; besides it shows the design detail off. Penny, only ppl of retired age ride bicycles and very rarely in knee-length skirts. The NL probably has the biggest bike culture in the world, and it's my main mode of transpo. In a knee-length skirt I have to hike it up a lot to pedal, and the car passengers are at the same height of the saddle, so... IMG, I'm short and it works on me. It's fun to try a new length. Think about it!

Really pretty! I think you're right about the size of the godet, although this looks nice. I wouldn't have guessed from the magazine that it dipped so far, so I'm keeping it in mind for future. I can't wait to see this in a fall plaid!!! Very cool!

Beauriful. I think I might be too short for this skirt. Darn.

Loverly skirt, I will see if DD wants one. I am too short and way tooooo wide and have completely lost the desire to wear a skirt. :)

That color is so rich. This is quite stylish and should be modest, too, for bicycling.

Yours looks much better than mine because of the fabric. Nice skirt!

Thanks for the review. I'll try not to shout out "Where's the pics?" :-) You make a good point about the bias seams -- I'm just gleaning all of this information myself. One question regarding modest bicycle riding -- Are folks in the Low Countries more modest than Far Easterners? Or just colder...?

Katharine, I'm looking forward to seeing the photos, your skirt sounds lovely. It will be just the thing for cycling.

Thanks for the suggestion of interfacing the zipper area. I was thinking about making this skirt.

Thanks for doing the review, I am planning to attempt this pattern at some stage. Thanks for the heads up on the godet bit and the zipper.
