I just bought that pattern, yours look so nice!! does the pattern run true to size? Ive noticed some patterns end up Bigger/smaller than what it says. Just wondering I just hate to ruin the fabric i bought for the skirt.

love the first skirt. I almost picked up that fabric from hancock fabrics but decided to wait until I get better with sewing. don't want to waste perfectly gorgeous fabric on something I;'ll probably mess up haha

It did run true to size for me. My friend wanted it to rest on her hips, so I took her hip measurements and traced out the size bases on that. What I always recommend is to make a muslin first =] I usually hit up my local walmart and go to the $1 per yard section. It cost a little more in the long run, but nothing is worse than cutting into really nice fabric and then the garment doesn't fit. I hoped that helped! Please ask me any questions, and I'll be glad to help =D

I love those fabrics! Especially the red/black flowers. This pattern looks like it would be a good investment for summer skirts, must go buy it!
