This is such a great skirt! I wasn't sure about those diagonal lines when I first saw this pattern in BWOF, but now I'm totally convinced. And definitely, a side zipper makes more sense -- keeps the focus on the pretty, feminine lines. For ME, I might take the booty-hugging thing down a notch, lol. Sure works on you, though.

Really lovely, might try it myself. Now for the question: did you machine stitch the lining to the zipper or by hand? If it's machine stitched (as it seems to me from the picture), how exactly did you do it? I see this in RTW all the time, but can't exactly figure out whether to do it before stitching the seam under the zipper (of the lining) or before. Thanks.

Dawn, this is such a feminine, swingy skirt! It's so rare that when you make something that flatters your trim little body - that I can see the potential to work on my significantly larger body. But immediately after reading your wonderful review, I slapped this magazine on my cutting table. The copy-catting begins tomorrow. Thank you for showcasing this for us. Lovely, Lily

Ladies usually hate hearing this but great dye job. And this is an awesome skirt.

Nice work! The dye job is perfect and the color is one of my favorites. I like the lining too. You're so funny with the sandals in the ice and snow and volcanic ash!

This photo is hysterical. The purple, the sandles, the snow, the ash. Love the skirt.

So cute.

Okay, the sandals in the gray snow are as scary as the skirt is cute. This pattern definitely works better without the front zip, and I love your purple fabric.
