Wonderful, wonderful! Great skirt, great fabric, great review. And your project photos are always a treat. :) Those stitched-down pleats are a classy touch.

I have had this pattern for years, always admiring it, but never making it up. Your skirt is too cute, and perfect inspiration! Thanks for the review and the photos of the pleats, I will use that technique myself!

What a great skirt. Good call on sewing the pleats down - it really adds a lot and "finishes" it well.
