OOOW WOW! I love this! So fabulous and modern! I thought ab out leather when I saw this pattern, I am glad that you had the guts to actually do it. You pulled it off so well!

Oooh aaah! Love your skirt, the colour, the shape, the leather! And the silk and leather play off each other beautifully. And I also love your little purple booties.

I absolutely love this skirt. I skimmed by this pattern in the magazine but seeing it as part of your fab ensemble has me wanting to make it too. All your design changes have really enhanced it. Brava!

Beautiful - I'd be way too scared to attempt to sew with leather. Your skirt is gorgeous and also I love your detailed review.

It is lovely. As for the comparison picture with the Burda model - no contest - you look much better!

The skirt looks great and I'm in love with the contrast between the silk and the leather. It's such a nice piece for any wardrobe, and looks really chic.
