So, did it only take one hour? Love to see photos of your skirt, this looks like a good version of a wrap skirt.

I have been thinking about a wrap skirt and this pattern solves problems I might have had, thanks for the good review.

Georgene, I am a slow sewer so I always take way longer than the pattern says it should take. But this is so easy that anyone who knows what they're doing should get the skirt all zipped up and ready to wear in one hour, absolutely. I will get photos posted, just need batteries for the digital camera!

Hey Debtro, I have this pattern because I love wrap skirts too. Can you describe how you did the hidden ties? Thanks!

Debtro, Nice looking skirt. I love the design and the way you put the ties inside. Your skirt looks just like the pattern pic. Thanks for posting the pics.

Very nice skirt and like the idea of hiding the ites. Neat that the fabric and pattern are alike

Love your skirts and photos with ties, I have the pattern and bought great aqua/fuschia weave chambray with pieces of material stitched to the bottom, reads flowers. I'm one project behind and then will make it. Thanks for your recommendation too.

Barbara, I hope you post your skirt too! I can't wait to see what that fabric will look like made up. It sounds fabulous.

When it's made I'll post it but have to finish this tee and then alter skirt pattern as I discussed with Gigi.

You did an excellent job with the skirt. I don't really like wearing linings in skirts, but the wrap skirt really does benefit from having the lining. this is a wonderful idea!! I love the fabric that you selected, and the skirt looks well sewn.

I just made a wrap skirt (different pattern). I love the way yours came out, very classy. I love the fabric pattern too!

What a great review! Thats a great idea about snaps instead of ties. Somehow I missed this review the first time, and I like the twill tape ties as well. I have that exact same black embroidered linen in my stash (I think, or almost the same anyway :oP ). All of the skirts you made are very pretty. Thanks for reviewing!
