Love your version of this skirt. I made #112 from the same issue. After seeing the button up view, I may have to give that a try.

Simply stunning! Having such a great figure helps too. Perfect sewing and fabric choices and I just love the jeans buttons.

What a gorgeous skirt Christa! It flatters your figure so nicely and you can't beat that great bargain price too!

How fabulous, Christa! The style on you, the fabric, the details. Mostly it is such a great look for you...perfect length and with boots, tights, scarf....really sharp outfit. One has to love the price too!

Great skirt! I love the style of this one and the fit is perfection. I've had some fabric paired with this design since the issue came out. Sometime I will get around to sewing it up. Glad you didn't have any issues with it!

Very cute with great details!

Christa, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this SKIRT! The high waist is PERFECT for your figure, and it really stays UP, too, thanks to the extra underlining, I suspect. I can't believe how quickly you whipped this up, too! Have you finished the next one yet, huh, huh, huh? :o))

Love the skirt! Thanks for showing the inside- I never thought to topstitch prior to assembly. That seems like it would be much easier.

Wow, Christa. I LOVE this skirt! The color of that fabric is right up my alley and perfect for the pattern. It's fantastic! Make millions of them! It's so feminine but so sporty at the same time. I love the whole outfit.

Very smart. A perfect fit and beautifully executed.

What fun interlining on this very chic and elegant skirt. Love the jeans buttons, too! Wow, it's perfect and you've styled it wonderfully with the scarf and boots. I bet the kids were in awe of mom today!

Wow, that turned out great!!! The details are fantastic and the fact that you ended up with such a snappy stylish skirt for less that you would spend on a Latte and muffin (you can guess what I had for breakfast) is what makes sewing really pay off!! Love those short boots too!

Great skirt! It fits you perfectly.

Yipee, what an amazing skirt. I do believe that is the best looking "bargain skirt" I've ever seen. Your detail work is wonderful, top stitching, closure detail, and pockets are perfect! And is that waistline detail just not wonderful on you? I also think this type of skirt needs no lining as evidenced by the smooth ride over your tummy and hips. I strongly agree that more of these should be included in your wardrobe future.

Fabulous skirt! The style really suits you. I can see why it's a favourite. Strange how the instructions would leave the interfaced yoke exposed like that but I like your solution.
