A word of warning: if you decide to make this skirt, do check the size very carefully. It’s very fitted, which it should be, but if your hips are 92cm’s (like mine) and you decide to make it a size right in between M (88 cm hips) and M/L (92cm hips) because that size has worked well for you with other patterns from the same book, then think again. Make a M/L.
Now that I’ve overcome that little problem (by cuttina a new, oversized backpiece), I love this skirt! It looks almost identical to the skirt in the book (the last picture if anyone wondered), it’s really flattering to wear (believe me, I look really bad in some pencil skirts) and despite being narrow it’s actually comfortable.
