Lovely clear and detailed photographs really enhance this review. Especially as most of us sewers are visual people. Well Done!

That is a smashing skirt! I love the flare of the hem, and I think the contrast really flatters the figure.

To be honest I wasn't sure at first about the contrasting fabrics but when I saw your photo album I was convinced. This is fantastic - you should really wear it.

I think the high contrast is what makes this skirt great. I'd definitely wear it with some cute strappy heels. If I had the ability to mix like that, I'd do it more often- wear it with a little attitude;) it's very fashionable.

Great skirt. I bet it will look flattering when you walk in it. It will have movement and style.

Lovely skirt - the contrast is very striking, but tasteful! Choosing linen for the fabric was truly inspired!

I love the drama of the high contrast. This is a beautiful skirt.

I think it's excellent! Sometimes contrast works better in theory, other times better in person; and while I don't think I'm adventurous enough to have thought to put black and white together, I think the result is much more striking and fantastic than a lesser contrasting pair. Kudos! It looks lovely on you.

High contrast is high style.. great skirt... Great selection & execution. Wear it.. it is fabulous! So perfect for a little summer sizzle.

thanks morzel. I have some of both fabrics left over, and was considering using them to make a top. I was thinking of Vogue 8393 View C, with the upper part in cream, just as you suggest.

The contrast is just what I like with this skirt! I find the colours much better chosen than the example on the patternpage. So go for it! Why not sew something matching for it? Black tee with cream neckband or such?
