Beautiful and elegant skirt, Debbie, and I love the hem technique (and trumpet lowering technique) you've used. The hem gives real substance to the base of the skirt and adds that high quality look. The colors are sumptuous and so perfected suited to your hair and complexion. Very lovely, Lily

You're going to be one classy lady heading to work in your new wardrobe. I absolutely LOVE this skirt: the fabric, the colors, just the pure "trumpet-iness" of it. :o) Another winner!

Pretty skirt and I like your fabric, especially the colours. I thought it was slinky until I read the description.

Pretty skirt. I love the micro pleated fabric. Haven't seen that before. I also liked the tips explaining how you maintained the trumpet-iness. Love that term--reminds me of "truthiness."

I love your quick method for shortening the pattern so that you keep the trumpet shape where it belongs. This skirt is indeed a fast project and it turned out nice.

I'm including all the garments in this comment. A truly lovely outfit of clothes and such lovely colouring for you. Beautiful workmanship - I do hope you enjoy being back at work and that your sewing machine doesn't scream at you too loudly when you go out of the door !! By the way, I expect you've noticed that the bottom button on your jacket is a teeny bit out of alignment ?
