Nice skirt! You did a great job and it looks like it fits you really well. The fabric looks really cute. I agree about the suggestion to wear the opaque tights. They help keep your legs warmer, too. ;-)

Thanks for all of the wonderful comments. Skymom, I'll have to try the opaque tights with it...that would look really nice!

Well done Lucha. Very cute skirt. I'm sure you'll get an A! Skymom, what a great idea about the tights. That would be a great look with this skirt.

Very cute skirt. With a pair of really opaque tights, maybe you won't mind the length so much--and the sort of "mod" mini-skirt with tights look is in again this winter. Nice work!

Lucha, awsome skirt! your photo looks like the photos of the size 8 girls. Perhaps above the knee is an attractive (but maybe uncomfortable) look for you. Kudos, you did great.

Good job, Lucha! I remember sewing in high school but my garment didn't turn out this well. The skirt is kind of short, it will look good a little longer. Very good on your first garment

Great job! I remember sewing an Aline skirt in jr high school, we had to take each seam to the teacher to be inspected. Probably the neatest seams I have ever sewn before or after! I love your burgundy print fabric. It sometimes takes trial and error to figure out where the hemline should be on what kind of skirt. Happy sewing!
