Very cute skirts- I think I will have to send for this pattern because of all the favorable reviews. Thank you for the elastic tip!

Kathy, thanks for all your wonderful reviews of late, I've appreciated them. I think I know what you mean about the vent but was hoping you could clarify about the double folding. Are you talking about the finish on the side that just has the 1/4" seam? I'd like to know how to do that better. I just love this pattern!

This is one of my most frequently used patterns, and it never fails. Thanks for another helpful review-I will use the tip about changing the vent position.

I am talking about the side that lays flat to form the bottom of of the vent. The pattern has you turn the raw edge under one time toward the inside on the skirt. I made a narrow turn then turned again so that none of the raw edge showed on the inside of the skirt. It is just a little thing that bugged me because the fabric is used raveled so much.

Very pretty skirts. I love the blue linen outfit. I agree with your assessment of this pattern; I've made several of this skirt all with good results.

Your skirts are very pretty. I appreciate your elastic hint. Although I'm not a fan of elastic waists, I may try this. I bought the famingo print for capris too. I'd better get it made for use this season. Thanks for the review.

Great review with lots of tips--I've printed it out, because I'm going to sew this up. Also, thanks for the GREAT TIP about adding darts to the Burda one seam pants that I'm preparing to sew. I have some wool jersey that I want to use for this skirt--do you think that would be a good idea? (I'm not very Fabric Savvy.)

Kathy, I have used your suggestion to use the darts on my One Seam Pants also. Thank you for this great review. I got here via your picture update on flickr. Do you still have the flamingo skirt? Would totally enjoy seeing that one! Love your portfolio! Carla
