Beautiful skirt! Makes me want to take this class! I would love to make a black skirt.

You should! Diana Rupp is a really good instructor and was very active online with the students taking this class. Now that I figured it out, I feel like I could easily sew it again in many fabrics and colors.

Nice skirt, but the lines around the hip reveal that it is too tight, thus the skirt creeps upwards. Apart from that - brill!

Very beautiful! Looks great on you. I was wondering if there is a slit in the back...I can't really tell. If not is it hard to walk in? Is it stretchy fabric? Beautiful color.

Thank you for the wonderful compliments! Yes, there is a kick pleat slit in the back which made it easier to walk in. It's not a stretchy fabric so if I did remake it, I wouldn't make the hips so tight. Though I do love the effect Joan from MadMen has when her skirts have those horizontal lines.
