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!

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

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.

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!

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.

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

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. ;-)
