I modified it a little.  I made the skirt a half circle and added a tube top to the waist band. 
I love your modification with the tube top.  Can you explain how you did that?

I'm moving to Seattle!  PM me if you know about knitting groups there! Or a favorite yarn store!

I love that pink Kittin.  I only bought black and beige in plain fabric for this (and 4 different prints).  might have to go shopping again.
Got my second one done tonight. 
I am so in love with this dress.

I think it was the circle skirt that put me off for so long,  but once I took the plunge it was so much easier than I expected.

I saw a post on Bluelines that I thought y'all might be interested in.

Where can you buy the silkly looking fabric?  Is that the satin jersey that people were talking about a few days ago?

Pfirsch, that video on the link you posted is great.  I never thought about putting the dress on upside down to make a draped shirt!  Totally cool idea!

This dress just gets better and better!

Hi to everybody who wondered about fancy fabric with stretch... I made a dress out of stretch satin (see pg 86), and it worked fairly well for a bridesmaid's dress.  I had to hem it and finish the edges more than with jersey, and it only really stretches one direction, but it did work and looked fairly dressy.  The drape is also a little different, as the fabric is stiffer.  Silk jersey would probably be much more like working with the recommended fabric, but also much more expensive and scary to cut!  Anyway, here's my source for the satin:

Okay, I bought my fabric, and I'm all ready to go. Quick question about circle skirts though - how long was yours? (radius from the center point?). If I have 60' fabric, am I going to have to make two semi-circles and sew them together (one noes! Now it's three seams! xD) or will I be able to get away with just one?
Any opinions?

I put in a wider waistband to drop it down to atleast my natural waist (a few I've dropped to almost my hips), which gives you a few more inches length in the skirt. It uses less fabric than two half circles, but it gives you a more below the knee kind of length. It really depends on how much you have to cut for your waist (because it reflects how much you will lose off your 30") I lose about 3.5 inches, and my skirt falls to a few inches below my knee. If you are hoping to have a more floor length style, I would do it in an a-line

Thanks a ton, Grand TheftUno! That sounds like it will work - I'll be sure to post my results!
