I think the skirt is very pretty, and as to the colors, well, maybe they will have inspired some Parisian lady there to try brighter colors! How nice to see you in front of one of my favorite places there, too.

Nice clear review. I must admit to still be an elastic in the casing girl becuase I have trouble getting it the right length otherwise. How do you get around this issue?

Very cute outfit! I love the summer colors, and what a backdrop! Paris! No wait, FABRIC SHOPPING in Paris! Great review, too!

I love the skirt. Fabric shopping in Paris! It sounds like a dream come true.

Looks like a great pattern for a traveling skirt. So tell us, what did you add to your stash during your Parisian fabric shopping?

If I had to add inches to the NL 6101, I would simply slash the skirt at the thigh and add the length there. Adding it to the bottom would alter the lines of the skirt by almost doubling the flair of the hem! I think you are the very antithesis of the "Ugly American" in you bright outfit on the Parisian streets (ps. what fabrics did you find to buy?)

Way to go girl - fabric shopping in Gay Paree - a true dream come true - you look great and am glad you brightened up the Paris scene!!

Ruthie - yes, you do run the risk of not getting the elastic the right length using this method, however I noted the length of elastic I used on the New Look 6101 skirt and cut it accordingly. Speaking of which, I really should write down the length I used so I won't have to guess for the next elastic-waist skirt or pants.
Janie - thanks for the advice on how to alter the length of New Look 6101. I was unsure of just how much I could add to either the thigh or the hem or both without destroying the look. Perhaps I will revisit that pattern now that I don't have a deadline.
Regarding the fabric I bought: I bought 3 pieces of light weight cotton prints (it was hot, so light and airy was on my mind!) and one linen blend in a caramel color. I will post pictures on my blog in a few days as well as (hopefully) pictures from the trip. Thanks for all your lovely comments!

I, too, tried the gored skirt from NL6101 and found it (on me--horrifyingly) short. But I DO love the pants in that same pattern and am in the process of cutting & marking them. (they seem to run short as well) I really like their patterns for knits & they're so quick and easy! Love that you went from envelope to packed in the suitcase in less than an evening.
