That is a REALLY cute pattern! I love the belt loops also. I think it looks retro but it would look better a little shorter. Maybe a couple inches above your knee, IMO hitting at your knee is an awkward length, looks a little "nursing student". You did a great job!
funny, i was just looking at the picture thinking that i should shorten the skirt. i'm glad you confirmed my decision ("nursing student"-lol!).
thanks for the feedback everyone! i'll post when i've shortened it.
