This looks like a really handy skirt pattern, you've done a wonderful job with it - well done.

Very nice. I work in an accountant's office in Colorado, which is very casual, but still you do want to look good. I have been looking at skirt patterns, and your review is making me look at this one. Yours looks great, do you think it would work out on a figure with a small waist and a little bigger hip with the elastic waist? Sometimes that gets a little bunchy, and with spending more $ on a pattern, it would be nice to have an opinion. Thanks a bunch!

Nice skirt style. This seems like a good one for your nice fabrics.

Frozzy--I think this would work for you. This design doesn't have so much fabric in it to make it all bunchy around the waist. Loes Hinse patterns sometimes run a bit small, so I traced out large and XL (and I think the pattern envelope said for my measurements that I would be medium) based on my measurements of the pattern piece. When I pin fit the pattern tissue, I still coudn't really tell, so I cut XL (made me decide to start on salads!). When I pin fit the pieces in fabric, XL was too big and I could see that it was more like a L for me. I sewed with 1" seam allowances, tried it on, liked it and trimmed the seam allowance to Loes Hinse's suggested 3/8" for less bulk. For your small waist, you might measure and look at cutting one size for your hips and a smaller size for your waist. This pattern does have some curve in it for hips and a smaller wait. It's not straight up and down so you might not get that bunchy look. However, if your waist is REALLY small in comparison to your hips, then you might look at going just one size smaller in the waist. It shouldn't emphasize your hips and will lessen any bunchy look. I like the look of Loes Hinse designs and the ease of construction. You just need to be sure the measurements of the pattern pieces are going to work for your body measurements because what is listed on the pattern envelope isn't always the case on the pattern itself. I'd try it if I were you. If it works for you, I'll bet you'll make several because it's so easy and looks so good.

Thank you for the reminder to measure the pattern pieces. I made the 2 layer version of the skirt and it's so easy. I am pleased with the fit too.
