You are so inspiring. I love the fabric but would never have known what to make from it. Beautiful fit and great look! I followed your blog photos and really love how you changed the look for "later" with the boots and sweaters.

Where did you get that fabric? It is so beautiful, and suits the simple lines of the skirt. Great styling.

That is such a pretty, pretty skirt. I just LOVE it. And your now and later styling is just PERFECT. I love the white blouse. What pattern did you use? And I'd be interested to hear more about the two mini darts in the back, because I need to make the same alteration to my pencil skirts. Why did you opt for that instead of increasing the size of the regular darts?

Wow! Thanks for your awesome comments! Echolalia, the fabric is from a local independent fabric store. Susiestitcher...thanks!!!! Paris75008, Ill be posting about the blouse tomorrow on my blog & later in the week on PR. Ok, about the mini darts...if you are ever jeans/pant shopping with me you'll constantly hear me complaining about serious gaping in the back. This is because my waist is significantly more narrow than my curvy bottom. It depends on where the garment places the waist seam that determines if I'll have to add my baby dart. In this case I wanted the skirt to sit just below my waist which is where the circumference change begins...suddenly. I'll only increase a dart size (usually) if it's just a smidge, doing one big chunky dart on the back view will surely cheapen your creative handiwork. I'll update by blog post with mini dart photos today. Thanks for asking!!

Thanks for the pictures of the mini darts on your blog, HLT. That was very, very interesting. I think we have the same figure type. I'm going to adopt your technique for altering my skirt and pants patterns.
