Since you've got a one-leather-skirt lifestyle, you certainly chose the perfect one! Excellent job!

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.

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

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

Wow, I'm speechlees, too beautiful (and what a great price for leather)!!! Glad to see the new "avatar" photo of you with your shorter haircut and your fab top.

So chic, so beautiful. If I ever come across leather I will have to buy.

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!

Love it! Love it! I need a leather skirt in my wardrobe! Must get on that! Thanks for the inspiration.

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.
