This pattern has been in my stash for several years and I have put off making it because it looks so nice with the piping but I didn't think I wanted to go ahead with all work..Many thanks for your honest review. I am going to trash this pattern.

Thank you for all your feedback! I am starting to recover LOL. MrsRoberts I will hold onto that channelling for the next skirt. First i am going to finish the coat that I started (V8307) then back to skirts I go! Claire Emily, I would say that if you forced me to do it again do the pencil skirt, with no piping andin a solid color. Just be aware that the yoke pieces are not even; the bottom yoke is wider than the top one. You may want to cut the top one in a larger size then they will match. I noticed that the other people on the site who made this skirt did not pipe it or make it in a plaid (one in print) and almost no one did the flared skirt. So it is up to you, but keep it simple. if you want a great Sandra Betzina there is 1184 on vogue (i think it is on clearance too!) and it is gorgeous. It is the only thing that she has made that I like, because it was reassonably challenging and unusual.

I have this skirt pattern in my stash - thanks so much for your review, I might think twice before making it now! It might have been painful but the finished skirt is simply gorgeous! The matched plaid and the piping is beautiful. I hope that you wear it.

The end result looks quite wonderful. Too bad it was such a miserable experience.

Fabulous review and I agree about the chatty narrative and way too much information on her patterns, makes my head spin. That had to be so hard lining the plaid up, all in all it looks like a very interesting skirt that I would not mind wearing sans the sewing.
