Beautiful skirt, as always, like the sideways stripe and valuable info re: the back zipper!

I love it, too. The stripe adds a lot of interest to this skirt--and it already had a lot. Super!

Ann, great eye catchy result... your fabric choice really accentuates the design of the pattern to its advantage. Thanks.. I might have to run out and get this one ... like RIGHT NOW!

I love this skirt. You did a great job with the stripes. When I make this skirt, I will definitely benefit from this review.

Very interesting - I didn't realize from earlier reviews how big the pocket is! The stripe really enhances this style, and of course, it looks terrific on you!

I've always been intrigued by this skirt pattern. I love yours! I would leave the back zipper off, too. :o)

Your version is more designer-ish than the designer's, lol. Very cool skirt, love the zipper detail. Thanks for the head's up on the back zipper. Great review. Sue

I am about to make this pattern but was worried it would not be dressy enough. Your version shows that it can be dressy. I love your fabric, it looks so much better than the picture on the pattern envelope. Great
