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

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.

You made an absolutely great looking skirt.

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.

Very pretty skirt! It looks great with your boots!

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

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).

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

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

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

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)

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!

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

Gorgeous skirt.

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.
