Question...Do the patterns allow you to mix and match the pieces? the reason I ask is...I would like to make the C waistband and attach it to the D bottom.

Excellent skirt - especially the bias side section. I never noticed it before. You look so chic and polished in your outfit!

Mushy, Thank you very much for your thorough explanation. Your answer and your kindness in previously having shared your measurements for all to see, allows me to know how to proceed.

Hi Persevering! This new skirt version sits at my natural waist. I didn't have to make any pattern alterations on the size 10. I used ribbon to stabilize the waist, therefore it is smaller at the waist than the white skirt, which stretched and sits lower because it too was cut on the bias and not stabilized with ribbon.

This skirt looks great on you! Thanks so much for your posting and blog which is so inspiring to me. Can you please tell me : 1) if you had to make any pattern adjustment regarding the waist, and 2) exactly where it fits on you - exactly at your waist, or down a bit? Thank you.

Love this skirt. The seaming and the flounce make it special.

Love this skirt! And your blue top goes so well with it. I see that you live in Hawaii? This outift looks perfect for that tropical weather. My DH and I used to live on the Big Island. We miss it so much. We are trying to get back there.
