Love it. I want one too! Clever to make the back in a larger size.

Beautiful skirt. I like the idea of the elastic waist

Anne, I really like the fullness of your skirt. I love long skirts and boots. You did a nice job converting this pattern for a knit.

Very nice!! Your skirt is flattering and looks really comfy as well. Great tips, Thanks!

You're looking mighty sassy there girlfriend. That skirt looks great with the purple sweater. Great idea to size down and use a knit. The boot look good with it too.

Great looking, basic skirt. I also make my skirt backs a size bigger too.

Very nicely done! Great tips, too.

Ann, thanks for this review. It's a wonderful skirt & looks like a great fit! I too will remember about making the back larger than the front, for obvious reasons! (Well, Duh!)

That looks really lovely! I think you have inspired me to make one too.

Wonderful skirt! It looks great on you.

Thanks everyone. Wore my skirt to work. It was comfy, although I did crackle w/ static electricity some (dry winter air - I wasn't the only one). I don't like elastic waist wovens on me, but am fine w/ knits.

Lovely skirt, Anne! What a great addition to your wardrobe staples. I can see why you'd like to make another for other seasons.

I love your attitude in the first picture. You're great! Thanks for the great review. Have fun with the skirt

Very cute skirt!

Thanks for the great, comprehensive review! The extra length really suits you--this si a great boot skirt. I think you would look great in the flared, tulip-version for the summer too.

Great skirt Anne. It's very flattering and is probably cozy warm.

Anne: this skirt looks terrific on you. Thanks so much for the review: clever use of a woven pattern converted to knit design. I'm tempted to "whip this up", based on your review.

Anne - this looks great on you!

I love your skirt! And here's to hoping it doesn't show up as a felted bag--it's too nice for that :) !

Great job Anne. I really like that black skirt. At least your pics turn out the right color :-)

This is one groovy skirt! Lovely drape and fit on you and looks like nice fabric.

I love this skirt and think it looks great on you. Well, maybe the side view is more exciting than the "boring" front view! Who are you kidding--the whole thing looks fabulous!

Ann, you look happy in your new skirt--cute photo, and this pattern looks like a winner. I love the long version (and the purple with it!).
