I'm sure I overlooked the cute seam lines because of the model sitting on the pier, too! I'm so glad you reviewed this skirt--I may have to give it a try!

I TOTALLY overlooked this skirt in that issue and I've been agonizing over which of the less-than-exactly-what- I- want knitted, gored skirt patterns in my stash to use. You've solved my problem! Thanks.

I just received a buttermilk knit fabric I had ordered to use for this skirt today in the mail! Yours turned out great and now I'm inspired to hurry up and make mine :)
