Your skirt is so cute! I fell for it too the moment I first saw it. I'm so happy to read your review! Thank you! :) Are you planning to make the pants too? I'm thinking it could really work for my own biking lifestyle - that is when winter finishes (I'm in Canada & we're into major snow).

Like you, I fell in love with this the first time I saw it and I've just received mine. Your skirt is beautiful! I can't wait to get started on mine.

This looks great. I especially love the pocket. May have to think about getting this pattern.

I just love your skirt. I dont like dresses or shorter skirts all that much and do occasionally put on a long denim skirt... this would be a dress up skirt for me. Bravo well done! I hope to get it at the next Vogue patt sale.... Thank you for sharing... esp the part about reviewing the directions ahead of time.

Thanks for the tip on the sizing issue. How is Vogue going to notify those who have purchased this pattern? Anyway, your skirt is great. I can't wait to make one up. I agree, linen would make up nicely in this pattern.
