Nice skirt and I'm sure the slip will be coming soon so you can wear this beautiful skirt and feel comfortable.

I like the fabric you chose for this and can't wait to see you in it!

What a great summer skirt. I have this pattern (for the jacket) and didn't even think of the skirt. Now, maybe...

Great review, Riesie, and such a cute little skirt. I too like it best when the straight of grain goes down the middle of the panels instead of the side seams (so much more flattering), AND I like the wider hem for the same reason you stated. Once you get that slip whipped out, you'll be in business!

A good summer skirt and a useful review, particularly the notes about the grainline placement of the skirt pieces.
