Anne, I guess in a heavier fabric I would be going for a more tailored look. Kind of like a suit skirt. This was to be a sort of "picnic skirt", the type of thing to wear if you want to be comfortable, but do not want to wear shorts. I'll wear it with a sleeveless black silk shirt and black sandals. BTW, This skirt hangs just the way the model in the pattern photo's does, not so much like the illustration.

Glad to see you back sewing! You have me thinking spring with that fabric. This is probably a stupid question, but... why would you do down more with a heavier fabric? Wouldn't the extra fabric thickness require the space? Oh, perhaps it is because you would be going for a different look with a heavier fabric?
