I absolutely love this skirt - thanks so much for the pattern and tutorial info. I have been looking for a wrapped drape like this. The plaid is fabulous. Nice work!

I love it! What a great way to wear plaid!

Fantabulous. That lovely plaid could have looked staid in a plainer skirt; this design is a wonderful marriage of fabric, construction and pattern.

Ooh, how cute! It is fun seeing your creations. I like your critiques of everything too - Perhaps it'll help me develop more of a discerning eye?

i am a pear shape too, and would think a skirt this shape would only make it worse...but with the fitted top, its a perfect balance and looks great. love your fabric choice - a perfect match for this style.

Your skirt looks so cute on you! You did a great job.

One of my favorite silhouettes on you! You look fabulous in this. Think about making this type of skirt shape in a solid (with or without the drape). I think two pieces are definitely the way to go. GREAT JOB. EXQUISITE WORKMANSHIP.
