Don't you doubt your figure! What a great idea this is. Imight have to give it a try (although I probably WON'T use $10 per yard fabric - great price for the duppioni, BTW). Hope we get to see an entire SWAP from you - love your work.

Trendy and cute skirt! The overall look with your cardigan, stockings, and boots ....what can I! We should replace the cover girls on my Elle (Jessica Biel) and my Marie Claire (Rebecca Romijn) with NiceGirl! Your review is helpful and witty at the same time! Way to go, NiceGirl!

Thanks for the great review... informative as well as entertaining. I think the skirt turned out quite well, and I love love love that fabric! I think the 1 inch pleats would be more noticable on a solid fabric, but in this case the fabric is so striking that it dwarfs the deisgn elements.

I love this skirt but I am still rolling on the floor laughing at your Saran wrap experience. Agree that since JLO brought back the big booty lots of us can be in the game again!! What you make is always lovely and your reviews are quite often very funny. You are a winner in my books!!

Great color combination, cute skirt, and a very helpful review. I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to try the Saran wrap, but I sure enjoyed seeing your photo tutorial!

This is very cute. I like the flat front and back and the pleated sides. It looks good on you!

Well, now at least we can think of a good reason to wrap yourself in Saran wrap. (I never understood the sexy aspect myself, but I might give it a shot for patternmaking). I love your summer colors, and the skirt's very cute on you.
