Great skirt on you. You have nice slender hips and the extra width from the draping suits you. On me, it would be a disaster. *sigh* Lucky and talented you! :)

That looks great! I like the lines of the skirt, but worried that it would be too widening at my saddlebags (the widest part of my body). I see that it looks great! I will think about it more seriously having seen your version.

I've looked at this unique skirt many times in BWOF, but wondered what it would look like in real life. Well, it looks smashing and now I'll have to make one. Very much appreciate the length warning as I'm significantly over 5feet. I too love the shapely curves it emphasizes on your body. Lovely, Lily

Thanks for the heads-up on the length. This is such a pretty skirt - I think it has to go on my to-make list. Looks great on you!

I love the overlapped pleat in the front. It's a lovely skirt!

Lovely twist on a skirt. Your photos make it much easier to see how this pattern is supposed to look.

Great job - I made this skirt once and am doing it again as part of my Wardrobe because I liked it better than I liked the original fabric. Those pleats are hard to get a grip on at first!

It's lovely! I didn't take any notice of this in the magazine but yours is much better anyway. :)
