Your skirt turned out really nice! I like this pattern. I made it once out of denim that I think was too heavy. I had trouble with the lapped zipper too - perhaps because of the heavy fabric. I ripped it out twice then gave up and did a centered zipper. I'm going to try it again in a different fabric, which might work better.

Beautiful job! Thank you for your great review. Also, thank you for posting your blogsite on your profile. I have been searching for a sewing blogger. If you would like, you can check out mine, I don't always write about my sewing though. When I do, I always include pictures. Again, Thank you!!!

One of my favorite skirt patterns. I LOVE your addition of the gathered organza ribbon. Great job.

This skirt looks so nice on you. I don't think the trim is overkill at all. It looks very nice.

Very cute! Your skirt might stand out more due because of the trim but I think it's very pretty on you! I like the way you added one row of plain ribbon above the ruffles. That's so unexpected and really adds a lot to the design.

Good call on the trim and very nice work on the zipper. It looks really great! Can't wait to see more reviews from you.

Very cute skirt. I love the ruffle and trim details.

Oh, that is a pretty skirt and looks very good on you. The zip application is very neat, and I love the trim you have used. I think the colour is nice and in the summer will look super when your legs are tanned. Its great to welcome another active UK member!

This looks great - love your details! You did a great job on your review, also. It's hard to believe this is one of your first projects.

Very nice skirt -- love your details! I think that KS sizing runs a bit large (usually). Their directions are normally so good that I'm surprised that the zipper directions weren't clear. Your zipper looks perfect.

Thanks for your review. I really appreciate getting a beginner's perspective on this, because I just recommended this pattern last week to a friend who has never sewn a garment but refuses to start with an elastic-waist skirt like the rest of us did. This pattern meets all of her style criteria, but it also sounds like we can do this.

Thanks for your very well-written and helpful 1st review! Cute skirt and sounds like you learned a lot throughout your project.
