Lovely skirt! Great to see it in full like yours cause as usual I can't see much in the BWOF model photo.....I also love the idea of a soft denim version of this, thanks for the inspiring review.

Lovely skirt, I was worried about the corners on this one too, but your tips are very clear and helpful. I wanted to make this but I had a non stretchy fabric in mind, would it work in your opinion? Thanks!

Very, very helpful review, and thanks for styling it with the right top, tights and shoes. So often I'm disappointed that the "look" hasn't been achieved in the photo because of lousy styling. And you have the figure to go with this slinky retro look. Many thanks!

Thank you for the wonderful review. I too learned very much from your clear instructions. The skirt looks fabulous on you! I must dig that issue out and try it for summer.

This skirt didn't jump out at me in the magazine but you make it look terrific. And THANK YOU for the fantastic corner tutorial. Really helpful!

What a smashing skirt! You did an outstanding job. Sewing away from the corner is a big help when sewing this type of seam. Excellent review.

Great review. And the skirt looks fabulous.

Wow that skirt is so flattering and so is that top. The photo is so professional. Which pattern did you use for the top?

Cute skirt! You did a great job on those corners. I have found that I have to alter where you did for swingy skirts to work on my height, so I'll keep that in mind if I ever get around to this one.
