Thanks for the tip: I have just cut out view A, and I think I will use a back zip now too to avoid any angry sewing moments!

I have this pattern waiting for the right fabric, so it's good to read your review. Did you feel that the fit was good--not too tight in the size that corresponded to your hips? I love the yellow--it's really fabulous and bold.

Darla, I did not interface the zipper area. Maybe I will try that the next time I decide to beat my head against the wall... ;)

I too have been considering this skirt pattern. Really love the bright yellow. Adding this to my wish list. Good review.

Very nice. I already had this on my wish-list. I think it is a great looking outfit - bright but good for all seasons.

Your skirt turned out very nicely. I am working on a different view from this pattern and planning to use an invisible zipper instead of a lapped zipper. Did you interface the zipper area?

Lovely skirt! Thanks for the review -- I think it must be very flattering on, especially while one is moving around! I haven't had that much trouble with invisible zippers when set in the side seam. I think maybe because the bottom stop & tape aren't quite so bulky?

This is a really cute skirt. I've found that if I must do side zips over curves that sewing the zipper in by hand works well. It's not nearly as difficult as it sounds.

I love this pattern and have been meaning to get it. It looks great! Thanks for the review.

Wow! Funny, I was considering buying this pattern just yesterday. Now I'll have to go back to JoAnn's, sigh. Personally, I detest a side zipper. I put mine in the back whenever possible. 12-year old? I don't think so!

I just bought this pattern and the side zipper rang alarm bells for me too; I have the same problem with that little ripple at the bottom. I wondered about the length also. Thank you for a very helpful review.

Love this, gutsy color and very feminine styling. A lot of people cant wear this bright color up top but perfect for a skirt.

Wow! What a beautiful skirt pattern. I think I like all the views, and your sunny yellow skirt just makes me smile. The hem looks ok in the photo. As my mother always said, "on a moving horse, no one spots a fly."

Very nice looking skirt. I bought this pattern as soon as it came out but haven't made it yet so was glad to see your review.
