Oh my, this is a perfect example of a garment that looks SO much better than the pattern envelope! I like your change to a faced waistband. Looks great with your boots too -- and swishy fun to wear.

Lovely skirt! Thanks for sharing especially what you did to eliminate the waistband and add the facing.

Thank you!!!! I needed a nudge to get me away from waistbands on skirts and *some* pants. Your skirt is just lovely and I really like the facings. I'm going to try this on a skirt. Really nice Terri!

You've got the perfect figure to show off this skirt. :o) I love the stitched pleats, and your faced waist is a real winner. (I like your boots, too. You might say I have a REAL PROBLEM with boots ... as in WAY TOO MANY, yet I keep buying more!) :o)

Love the fit then flow of this skirt. And your faced skirt is so much sleeker. Beautiful!

Great looking skirt. The facing is a perfect alternative to the shapeless waistband.

Your skirt looks lovely. I love the length and the faced waist gives a lovely smooth line.

Just perfectly lovely with those delicious pleats and the change at the waist. But I'm looking at the hemline, too, and I don't know what you did but it looks perfect. Machine stitched? Faced? Well, I guess I'll never know but it looks very nice. Great project and the boots make the perfect pairing (but so would ballerina flats, too, I'll bet).

Beautifully made skirt. I too like to face waists instead of using a band. This looks fabulous with the boots.

You took a so-so pattern and made it into something really nice. I love the way the fabric just looks like it's gliding around you. The waistband elimination results in such a nice, smooth fit and finish.

You made an absolutely great looking skirt.

I love the swishness of your skirt. Nice touch doing away with the waist band. I like the seriousness of the fabric contrasting with the loosness of the pattern, and you've done a great job with the hem too.

Very pretty skirt. Your changes to the pattern enhanced it tremendously. Looks much nicer than the pattern. Nice job.
