L-O-V-E this style skirt!! And you have nailed the fit. Your blog photos of the rigilene added detail and the tab closing should be in everyone's saved tutorials! Beautiful style choice and work. Was the high waisted yoke difficult to fit? This style truly is incredibly flattering. Thanks so much for your review and your blog photos. I will proudly copy you!

What a fabulous skirt! It fits you so well and the fabric is gorgeous! Thank you for the photo tutorial. I love the tab closure idea and as soon as I saw that, I realized that I might as well throw out my hook & eye's cause this process will be replacing those! I love that look - so clean and finished!

Wow, I was iffy about the high waist on any one but a BWOF model, but this looks great on you. Very flattering and I love your idea of doing it with a bias plaid.

Your skirt looks fantastic, really flattering waistline. When we get our winter over here I might just try it!

You have done a fabulous job on this skirt Sue, congratulations! It is very flattering and feminine, I'm getting used to the high waist myself and think it looks very fashionable. The fabric works well, I have mine ready to go in a black sateen. Well done!!!
