I have had this pattern forever and have never made it. You have inspired me to pull it out and make it! Yours is just beautiful.

Beautiful skirt, I like the longer length too! Thanks for all of the info regarding the odd instructions. You look radiant!

It is a beautiful skirt! Really helpful to know that there are 2 versions of the pattern out there. By checking the instruction sheet, no one can get burned by the pattern that was missed during an update (well, hopefully they pulled the ones with errors).

an example of the detailing that I've always felt spelled Vogue. The pocket, waistband, and top stitching are so well done. Classy!

You are going to be getting LOTS of RAVE REVIEWS on this skirt, HERE and IN PERSON. It's just PERFECT! I really do think it's my VERY FAVORITE SKIRT EVER of yours. :o) IMPECCABLE tailoring, too.

You are just model perfect in your new MT skirt. Your workmanship is wonderful and the fabric perfect for a late summer/fall iteration. Thanks for showing different ways to accessorize this wonderful pattern; it is one of my favorite skirt patterns ever. Oh, btw, the longer look is so on trend and looks perfect on you.

Love your Marci Tilton skirt! No wonder you are thrilled with it. The style, plus all of your impeccable sewing and great fit makes this skirt a winner. I sewed one of these too (and love it), but realized I never submitted a review.....maybe yet sometime.

Everything about your skirt looks fabulous! What interesting cutting instructions....but it does make sense, I guess. LOVE the seaming & pocket details!

Beautiful skirt. What meticulous work you do the moment you sit behind that machine! Doesn't matter if it's yours or your daughters'. I'm such a fan!

Christas, Thank you for the update on the comfort/ease appropriate for yourself ... my hip measurement iis almost identical to yours (alas, my waist is bigger) so everything you write is instructive.

I love it on you. The color and longer length (and the slim white top & scarf) are so perfectly matched. It's lovely!

You have all the reasons in the world to be thrilled with your new skirt. It is thrilling indeed. What a great look. The entire outfit is wonderful. Super look. What a tiny waist you have...
