This is a wonder skirt pattern - I made my muslin out of a charcoal grey and the lines were incredible. Kudos to the designer really...thanks for sharin' Nicegirl!! Good job as always!

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

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

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.

Looks awesome on you! I have cut out and partially sewn a second version of this.

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