Thanks for the review. I was on the fence about which size to cut so I think I'll make the smaller one. Don't you hate when you go through all that trouble and the size is all wrong? Happens to me a lot because I don't like making muslins. The pattern says it has 4 inches ease in the hips and thats a lot.Your skirt seems to fit the dress form well. If it's big in the hips why not take it in a little and shorten it? It's a shame to waste your fabric if you don't like it.

I think it looks very summery and wearable. Spring is coming...give it a chance with a couple of wearings before you make a decision. I really like the fabric and was just looking at this pattern today with linen in mind. Thanks for the review!
