Wonderful pairing of fabric and style and very helpful review. Thanking you for persisting so that you can share a little of your summer with us.

Gorgeous, pretty skirt! Perfect for a spring/summer day. Great job on matching that side seam too. There is no way I'd be unpicking it either. :)
Btw, the Big 4 use way too much hip ease in pants & skirts (about 3") so I always choose my size using the finished hip m'ment. I like 1" of hip ease in a standard, straight skirt.

Your skirt is very cute! Now that you know how to size this pattern I hope you'll make another. Great job!

With the alterations this skirt fits very nicely - I had been reading your posting on your problems with fitting - The matched side seam is perfect and the fabric is beautiful. Perhaps making a fitting muslin will help with sizing. Keep up the good work

Instead of making a muslin of the whole skirt, how about just making up the waistband. When you've got the fit just right, you will be able to see how to adjust the skirt, especially on a full one like this.

Thank you all for your lovely comments :) Sew4Fun, I will note done what you've said about ease! And yes, I will be making at least partial muslins for now- that should save me some pain! I've learnt many more lessons.

It's a gorgeous skirt - fitting is not exactly fun, but great when you get it right!

Your skirt is very cute. Congratulations on working through your fitting issues! A muslin is a great idea and there are so many times I regret not taking the time to sew one first before cutting into my beautiful fabric! Enjoy wearing your cute skirt!

I recently finished making a New Look skirt and was frustrated with the sizing as well. Came across your review while trying to determine if it was just the particular pattern I chose, or their patterns in general. Now I know! Thank you! Yours ended up great in the end - love the print. It was an expensive lesson for me to re-learn, having been sewing too many years for a good excuse!
