I am inspired to make this up after reading yur review. What are your feelings about making this skirt 10" shorter? I look forward to your reply.

I think that the skirt is designed to be "swingy" so as to make full use of the bias in the double knit that is recommended to make it. Most of the flare comes lower down towards the hem so you could make it shorter and it would be wearable but I think it might be nothing special. As I pointed out, I did really make an effort to put the bias strip hem on and it paid off because the extra weight really helped the drape of the skirt. In short, on balance, I wouldn't actually recommend making it too short but I don't know where 10 inches shorter would fall on you anyway! If you are very slim too, a short version might not cling so much and swing more.

Great review! I've made this skirt too and I love it. Thanks for reminding me to get it out and make it again.

Thanks for the great review. I can't see your picture though. Anyone else having that trouble?

This is a great pattern. I love your skirt but would have loved to see a bigger picture. I made this pattern also and it's one of my favorites.
