Cute skirt! I love all the topstitching details, and the buttons you used are perfect.

Nice work on all the details, which really make this skirt. You always do such a great job on your garments. Enjoy!

"I used darkwash denim that I found in the remnant bin at Hancock's for $4.00." "I made no alterations whatsoever. " GRRRRRRR ... How come I can never say that? :o)) Well, the NO-ALTERATIONS-WHATSOEVER skirt fits like a DREAM! (GRRRRRRR ...) You're so right, too, about this skirt being ultra versatile. It's hard to envision anything it WOULDN'T look good with! FABULISIMO!!

Beautiful skirt, it looks wonderful on you. Well done on figuring out the yoke construction - yours looks perfect.

Wow,this is a killer skirt, wonderful for so many occasions.

You did an awesome job on this skirt! I applaud you. I started it a few weeks ago and tossed it aside after my frustration fit with the front yoke. Now that Burda's instructions are long gone from my memory bank, maybe I'll pick it up and as you say "wing it" for the front yoke. Thanks for the inspiration.

Great skirt!! I've been admiring this pattern -- it has amazing, classic lines. It looks like a fun skirt to wear, made up in denim. :)

Thanks for the review. I'm planning on making it but I'll have to size up!!! Looks really cute and the price is right.

I love this new version and love the way you've paired it with the lace-trimmed top and the shorter jacket. Very, very pretty. And the length puts everything in perfect proportion, to my eyes. Nice job!

Two COMPLETELY different outfits with the same skirt pattern. I LOVE this pattern, and this pinstripe one is just so sharp looking! Oh, and I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO glad you got your fabric in the REMNANT BIN for $2, where I NEVER FIND ANYTHING. :o)

Those are absolutely perfect. Burda needs to use YOUR pictures in their magazine. You just amaze me!

Very cute skirts! Both can really be dressed up or down. The rest of your mini wardrobe looks great too.
