I didn't think about the fact that the lining helped support the pockets-- I was hoping to eliminate it altogether. What if pockets were something like chiffon or even silk organza--they're not functional anyhow... I might try that and see if I can get away with it.

Great interpretation of an interesting skirt. I like yours even better than the original.

What a perfect skirt for you! I love the pockets in the fabric you chose.

Great skirt! Clever changes to modify the pattern to your fitting desires and smart choice of fabric for a lovely drapey look.

Oh, how CUTE! I was just admiring this pattern during the last online pattern sale. I LOVE your version, and you wear it SO WELL. :o)

Great idea to do this skirt in a drapy fabric. It has a totally different look but it's fabulous. You are always thinking outside the box. I bought the pattern also, and I will definitely try it both ways.

Where did you get those boots? Also, I love the skirt and just generally love your taste in sewing.

You are such an adventuresome sewer! Very dramatic skirt.
