Very pretty. Does the double layering make it opaque enough that you don't need a slip. I have a bunch of fabric of about the same sheerness and had thought I would need to make some black or skin colored knit slips to go under them. Does the dark solid change the way the print looks when the print side is out?

Both your skirts look so much better than the pattern pictures! Loved seeing the complete outfits, too.

PopoAgie: I don't feel I need a slip with either of these outfits: the longer skirt (one on bottom) of the red-ish color is not shear, but the longer skirt of the other is, and no slip needed. The dark solid doesn't change the look of the print: actually, if anthing, it makes it look a little stonger. Thanks for your comment. Hope to see your skirts soon on PR!

That pink is REALLY flattering on you. What kind of fabric and from where?

Very pretty. I like your versions much better than the pattern picture. Using the contrasting longer skirt is a great idea.

Harriet, your KS top and this skirt look great together. As to Betzina's method, are you talking about butting the elastic up against the sewn seam of the lining and skirt. I found that I had to pin the elastic a little in places and also had to feel the elastic to be sure it was butted up against the waist edge seam and stretch at the same time. It takes a little doing, but I had good success after a couple of practice runs.

Thanks for comments. Binz: the blue-ish outfit was a rayon print and a rayon plain color long skirt: these will be dry-cleaned. The reddish is a polyester and maybe a little cotton that is washable. The first two fabrics were bought at G St in Rockville, Md, and I don't remember where the reddish is from (material was from my stash).

What beautiful outfits -- all the fabrics are wonderful. The long, lean look suits you well.
