Thanks for all the tips. I love the look of this skirt you did a nice job. I will definately try out the fit with pattern pieces before I cut it out.

Very cute skirt. I will wait until Vogue corrects it before buying the pattern. Thanks for the heads up.

Your skirt turned out wonderful! In fact, I may have to add it to my list of patterns.

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.

Sue that is one good lookin' skirt! It looks so swishy - must feel good when you walk. You must love wearing.

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.

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

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.

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).
