A lovely skirt Debbie and a belated Happy Birthday!

Men! I hope you set him straight about the slip. I like the fabric, and the longer lining adds a nice girly touch.

LOL, you are too funny. Overthinking indeed! Came out beautifully. I love that underskirt showing out the bottom. my dh would say exactly the same thing too ;)

The double layer makes the skirt look so summery; great idea.

Great skirt, I like the idea of the lining showing at the bottom.

Oh good, another "overthinker." I can identify with that. It came out very pretty though, ahhh, next time will be easy!

I love it. What a breezy summer skirt. I really enjoyed reading the process involved in making this skirt. Now I know why you've called me on "overthinking" a time or two--you're a fellow victim of overthinking yourself! It takes one to know one, eh? lol

This pattern sounds intriguing! The two-layer approach looks great. The way you did the waistband turned out very smooth and professional looking.

Very nice, Debbie! Lovely garment, and as always an enjoyable (when you're reading about it) adventure to get there!

Another gorgeous piece, Debbie! I can imagine myself listening tp Jimmy Buffett croon while sipping a tall glass of ..............icy strawberry Kool aid (stopped "drinking" real stuff years ago)

Cute skirt, Debbie.

Debbie, I *love* your skirt!! After all that effort, you came up with a lovely, summery & unique interpretation of this pattern! I really like the lining peeking out-it IS romantic :o) And I just knew it was yours when I saw the pic-the fabric is really cute! Well done, as always.

Great skirt -- love the idea of more panels in the back & back waist with elastic! I did that once a long time ago as a result of a class with Judy Barlup. Thanks for reminding me! (That is the extra panel in the back. The elastic only in the back I haven't done . . . yet! (grin)

Very cute...funny I had a meeting out of town and was thinking about what things that I am going to finish sewing and was thinking the very same thing making the lining longer than the skirt ...there were a couple of cute ideas for that in the Jan Burda magazine that inspired me...we'll see if I get it are an inspiration!!!

Great skirt! I really like the lining showing at the bottom. As for overthinking, don't we all do that? :) Another form is "analysis paralysis". At least you finished your skirt. ;-)

What a fabulous result from your overthinking! Love, love the underskirt and your hem treatments.

Thank you for a very helpful review!

Good thinking and thanks for a good laugh - your skirt is lovely. Traipsing through a store today and saw a top exactly like the one you reviewed yesterday for $58 - we sewers are certainly ahead aren't we?

Very pretty and so creative - I've been thinking of doing something similar - I've got some nice cotton lawn embroidery anglaise that would look nice showing under a light summer skirt. Well done!!!

Beautiful you overthinker you! lol I like it a lot! This is the most used skirt pattern in my collection. I like how easy it is to make and since I wear my shirts untucked, the back elastic waist doesn't bother me at all. As a matter of fact, I have about 6 more already cut out that I need to sew (all from marked down Tracy Porter fabric from Joann's ~ like $2/yd).
