Lovely work! What a perfect way to showcase this fabric. The match on the back is beautifully done.

Perfect fit and great way to use the border fabric.

I think it looks lovely. I very much like the fabric. Very good advice about the grain of the skirt. I have never tried such a thing, now I am sure I won't. I guess you must just spend most of your time standing while wearing it, because wear it you must, it is so very lovely.

The top of the skirt is gracefully designed, a little below the natural waist (it looks like) and neatly incorporated pockets. Very nice work on bringing the pattern to life.

You did well matching your borderprint. What I do now to succeed matching is to pin the fabric together, checking that the pattern is aligned from the right side. Then hand baste the seam, again check that the pattern is aligned. Then machine stitch the seam, begin sewing from the edge closest to the borderprint (the hem in your case). This way, the match will be perfect. Since this skirt has a slight curve at the hem, the correct way to adapt to a borderprint was to cut the fabric straight, following the border as you did--visually, the eye will read a "straight"hem because it will see that the border pattern is straight. For patterns having more of a curve at the hem/seam it is trickier to use a borderprint. One solution is to use your fabric above the borderprint, cut the fabric shorter, with the curved seam, then cut the border print straight across and use it as a "band" sewn back onto the fabric. Yes, a bit of a bummer....Or, ignore the grain, here is a post which gives some ideas: Your skirt looks great, enjoy wearing it!
