I love this skirt

When I started there were 3 questionmarks for me: how would the fabric be on me, is the piping  a good idea or not, does the high waist style suit me?  And I like the outcome very much. To be very honest, I think there could be a little more space at the hip area. I must make sure not to gain weight (still trying to get a few kilo's off it actually).

Full review is here, after not publishing reviews on my last few projects because of time reasons, I would like to keep adding to the invaluable database Pattern Review is.

Lovely lovely skirt. Your waist is so defined! I am going to have to put this on the list for sure. I already own the BWOF T and it looks fabulous with this skirt. Well done Sigrid!

This skirt is great, between the piping and the high waist shape it really highlights your beautiful figure!

The piping makes the skirt. Beautiful work.

Good idea to show off your waistline.

Sigrid - I looked at that skirt too and said to myself, "Nope - can't wear that - too young for me." You have inspired me!! Time to think out of the box.

What a great look ! Top and skirt are in perfect harmony. The fabric is soo interesting. Super piping. This pattern is so flattering you have the waist of a little bee like we say in French. Well done!

This is a great style for you. It really shows off your small waist. It is a lovely combination of fabric and pattern.

I love this skirt on you! It looks so hot and hip. It's the little details like the black piping and the skinny belt.
