I have a question on this skirt and I feel like a goofball because Im sure I confused myself. How many panels are there to this skirt? I confused myself because I wanted to put in a lining and I'm also not sure how I would accomplish that.

Grands1x - My height is 5' 5-1/2" and for skirts I'm usually RTW 6 or 8. With the yoke on this skirt you shouldn't have any trouble fitting her. Pin the flounce pattern piece to the skirt to get an idea of where it will hit her lengthwise. She's tall so this will likely be above her knees.

Sharon - love your skirt. Appreciate your comments. DIL has chosen this pattern for some summer skirts. Normally I make her little A-line style with an elastic waist. So I am concerned about the fit. SHe is tall (5'10") and likes her skirt above the knee. WOuld you mind telling me what size in RTW you purchase? DIL is JR 11.

I'm with you on the flounces and tie belts! I love the fabric you used, very eye-catching.

Thanks for your explanation, Sharon!! For me there's no "obviously" ;). I was AMAZED that we have "the stuff" at our Fabricville. Got the pattern & look forward to using your good review ideas!!!

Twill tape is not the same as bias tape. Twill tape will help stabilize a seam as it does not stretch. Bias tape, obviously because it is cut on the bias, can stretch.

I see on the pattern back that it calls for "twill tape"... Is that the same as bias tape??
