What a unique skirt. Love the way the pleats form belt carriers. I think the ribbon adds an extra touch that D rings just don't have. Pretty fabric. This one's a winner.

I love your ribbon. It's just perfect with the great print, and you look wonderful in it! I will have to take another look at this pattern. The bow is a real improvement over the D-ring, too.

Oh man, Christa, this is SO cute. I can see this is SO MANY WAYS! Black/white polka-dot with either a coordinated ribbon OR maybe a red one or a pink one. Brown/turquose, brown/BPG, the possibilities are ENDLESS. And it fits you PERFECTLY and is SO FLATTERING! It would even be cute in an eyelet!

Extremely cute, and you wear it well. How does one do that after birthing nine children? Great job. I love your interpretation. It's a totally different feel than the one in the magazine. Even though I like the one in the magazine, I like yours better. Thanks for the idea!

Thanks everyone for the nice comments. PopoAgie, as for birthing nine children, let me just say I LOVE control top hose!!!

Wow -- so nice!! It looks like something you might have bought at an expensive boutique. I LOVE the colors (well, and the fabric in general)! :)

Love this skirt on you. The fabric and ribbon are perfect together. It almost makes me want to try one of these BWOF patterns. I haven't worked up the courage yet.

This is gorgeous, much more so than the picture in the Burda WOF. I think I can hear some cotton in my stash calling for this one.

This skirt is so beautiful! What a wonderful fabric, and I just love the addition of the ribbon belt. You have great taste!

You know, I bet I'm the last person on the sewing planet to realize that Amy Butler fabrics make GREAT clothing! I never cared for her colors in quilts much, but wow, your skirt looks great! The style is perfect for you and the fabric is indeed lovely!

Your skirt is so much nicer than the one in the magazine. I didn't look twice at it but after seeing yours...well...I think I better trace that pattern. Beautiful.

Super-cute!! With that fabric, the bow is so much more appropriate than the adds a great flair to an already adorable skirt!
