Love it too! Smart idea to wear it with folds falling off center.

Love it! I'm not a plaid lover, usually, but I kept a plaid from a free mystery box, & I've already started my version of this skirt. I'm seeing a tablecloth skirt revolution happening! :D

mmcp: I am about 2 inches shorter than Sharon so I made my square a bit smaller.

Such an interesting skirt -- love it. I have yards of this fabric too and this is a good use for it.

Love Sharon's tutorial. Love your version. How inspiring you two are!

So glad you did this skirt! I can't wait to try it, but I've got 5 Unfinished big projects, so I have to finish those first! The skirt looks so nice and is so drapey! I like the plaid, but see what you mean about lining it up. We learn something new from every project, don't we? :-)

Yes, on my make-this-soon-list too, yours looks great! Are you the same height as sfhaza-- did you use her numbers for the sizes of the pieces? I noticed the Mizono dress fabric also seems to have more body, it think that would also affect how the thing looks a lot--if it's a very drapey fabric it'll fall flatter.

Very cool, Ann! Yours looks great! I sure enjoyed wearing mine for Thanksgiving yesterday. :)

Doobee64: definitely would work in solid. The original Mizono dress is a solid knit. I may do that...

I was eyeing up Sham's tablecloth skirt as well - how clever is it??? And your version of cutting is great. Looking forward to your next one. Do you think it would work in a plain fabric???

This is so cool-and it is very flattering. I love everything about it.

I love your version - and the way you placed the bulk off center. Very flattering. I will be making this as soon as I find the right fabric.
