Cute skirt for a cute fabric. What did you do about the side pulls?

Really awesome skirt. I love the fabric and think your skirt pattern choice highlights it. The color, and embroidery, and the belt make the skirt very special.

Once again, a Burda pattern that didn't do a thing for me until I saw it done here! You made it so CUTE! The embroidery just looks perfect on it. Did you do that too?

Wow, that's GORGEOUS!! And I'm amazed that it's such a high-waisted skirt -- you can't tell that at all from the technical drawing. So, I guess the natural waist is where the stitching is on the drawing?

This is a great marriage of fabric and pattern. They work perfectly together. I love those pockets!

This looks really super. You wouldn't have enough of this lovely fabric for a little vest to go on top, by any chance?

Your skirt is quite cute on you. The one on the Burda model is not so cute. I would not have considered this pattern except for seeing your review. I love that fabric by the way.

You've done it again - done a test drive on a pattern that's on my to-do list. And it's definitely still on the list after your review. Love the skirt, it works great with that fabric (that's why we stash, we're just waiting for the right pattern to come along). Love the pockets.

Your projects always turn out so great--I always have to see what you are up to next. You seem to be able to do anything. At first I was floored that you'd embroidered the flowers, they are the perfect complement to the pattern with regards to size and placement. The color really works well with the bright blouse, too. Great Job.
