So glad I read this! At least now I'll be prepared! This skirt is next on my list, and I have some concerns about the sizing having done a muslin for another HP where the collar is 3" wider (yes really) than the size on the packet. I'm not a beginner so I understand ease, but I am starting to worry about their sizing. Has anyone else found them to be over generous? ?

Thanks for taking the time to post this warning, I'll certainly measure before I cut. Have you sent a comment to Trudy?

Thank you for the tip. I just made the skirt in a size 10 and I had to redraw the waistband as you indicated, but now it is perfect and I love the skirt.

Doesn't this review count as a work in progress? Thanks for the tip but since you have not seemed to have sewn anything I couldn't find this helpful. Sorry.

Belinda. I seldom read reviews that have no project picture. I read this one because you wrote it. You may want to add something as the project picture to get better readership?

Oh, is that why I had such a miserable time with the waistband? It sure isn't shaped like me. Thank you for this explanation. I look forward to seeing your skirt.
