Cute skirt! I just made a skirt from this pattern last week:) I like how you made a facing for it. The knit binding is a good idea too. Did you try pressing the cordorouy on the wrong side only? I bet you could sew a size 6 or 8---check your hip measurement. You might find it worth your time to pick up the right size at a $1.99 sale (soon since it's OOP). The proportions will be a little smaller

Oh, I forgot: I'm going to remember your top about finishing with the knit strip, too. :o)

Very cute! It has a lot of movement, even standing still! :o)

This is a really darling skirt and nice to know that you liked the bamboo/cotton corduroy (as I was considering it and wondered). Your binding is a really nice special touch. Good luck in the contest. -Lily

Thanks for the review, a really nice looking skirt with just enough attitude! I like the binding you did on the inside - I am going to give it a try - great tip!
