Your skirt looks wonderful! Hilarious recount of your missteps / ripped seams... It's so nice to hear when others have these issues too! (Sorry) :)

Thanks for the amusing narration of your skirt construction. As Moonthirty says, it's nice to know I'm not the only one who, shall we say, loses track occasionally. Your results are terrifically flattering; no one but you will know about your little glitches, so don't tell them - just enjoy the compliments.

I am wondering how this will look on a "flat bottom?" I have hesitiated making it because of the high waist, which probably I could fudge, but mostly because I always adjust anything for a falt bottom. Anyone had any experience with this issue in this style? Thanks1 Your skirt looks luscious, and your pointers on the godet well taken. Thanks for the review

Excellent review. My DH thinks like your boyfriend. His primary fitting suggestion is always, "it could be pulled in..."
