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.

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.

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!)

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.

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!).
