The skirt looks great, and I love the fabric. Sometimes the simplest patterns turn out the best, especially when you use a great fabric.

Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous! So what is it about the waist on this skirt compared to others that keeps it from being bunchy?

Very nice outfit. Fun to read how the whole thing came together for you. I keep hearing about the technique with the elastic waist, and want to try it.

Based on your comments and other reviews, I may have to get this pattern. It's interesting to read about your process of choosing patterns and fabrics that go together. I am constantly baffled when doing this, but am encouraged to know it just takes some time and thought, even for a fashion savvy sewist like you!

I'm so glad you tried this. Your outfit looks wonderful, like expensive ready to wear. I think this is the best a-line skirt pattern I have ever used-not too tight and not too full.

Great top. I like the neckline too. It's just the right length with a nice shape.

What a flattering outfit! OT- you mentioned you are a pediatritian, right? You don't happen to be in FL, do you? We're moving there and would love to have you be DD's doc!

I love this on you, JLG. The fabric is stunning. When you say you might go up next time, did you sew this in an XS? I usually sew a M in Kwik Sew, and I usually find that has enough ease, but would I need to go up in this pattern? -Ann

Ann, I sew between an XS and S with 1/4 inch taken in at the fold with Kwik Sew knit tops. With so little ease and with the top coming down so far at the hip, every time I move my arms, I'll be pulling the hem back down in place. It wants to settle in a thinner area. When I make it a couple of inches shorter, I don't think that this will be such a problem. If I cut it as a small, I think that it would give just enough ease that it would drape instead of cling. Also, I guess that I could just give myself a little more ease in the hips. Of course, a different fabric may make a big difference. I find that stretch velvets are tighter on me than say buttermilk or rayon/lycra cut at the same size. Another reason that I will cut this shorter when I make it again is that this length comes down right under my tummy fluff, and I think that a top that cuts right across the fluffiest part is more flattering, particularly if it is close fitting.

You are the so prolific you are the Energizer bunny of sewing! Furthormore, everything always looks great. You attention to detail makes your garments look wonderful. I covet your warm weather. I won't be wearing anything sleeveless again for another 7 months. Meanwhile, I get to look at your beautiful green yard in all your reviews. Thanks for taking the time to share so much.

Lovely new top. I swear you put me to shame with your ability to get so many new outfits you ever sleep? I can tell you really enjoy sewing and that you have a very keen eye for what colors and fabrics will look best with a pattern. Love to read your reviews!
