Very cute skirt. I agree with you about the fabric; it's not that great for fitted garments. Thanks for the review -- I just bought this pattern to sew for my DD.

Love the flippy part in the back of the skirt. Personally, unless I can feel and test the hand and wrinkle factor, I steer clear of linen. Good going lowering the waist band, very cute skirt.

Thanks! Patti-I'd love to see how yours comes out. Sims-yeah, I think I learned my linen lesson! Well, now I know for next time.

Thanks for the info on the waistband! I assembled the facing the other day and it was way small for where I wanted it to lie. But it totally fits above my belly button. I think I'll be making a similar modification to yours.
