This skirt was all the rage last year! Depending on the fabric you choose, it can be a really elegant look. Very retro.

This is a great vintage-inspired piece. Very reminiscent of skirts from the 60s and 70s.

Ugly and ill fitting.

So why leave a five star rating?

i like it a lot it has huge potential !!! thank u this does get me thinking outside the box !!!

I agree, this is horrendous. Why would this monstrosity be posted as something anyone would want to make? Even one with the slimmest figure would look hideous! UGH!

Hideous! This will not flatter ANYONE!

ugh, as in ugh-ly

This is unflattering and just plain waste of time to think I would make this skirt and wear it in public. Get serious!! Who thinks of these time-wasting patterns? Obvious someone who does not have good tastes.

That's just about the ugliest thing I've ever seen. I can't imagine anyone wearing that out in public.

is this a joke? my mother used to use the expression someone would look good in a brown paper bag--it was a joke.

Sorry but what was this person thinking it is horrible!

That is just totally ugly and very un-flattering.

So I agree with most of the comments here....sometimes, i just wonder why did any one bother wasting their time on this project.

If you need a pattern for this, well, you need help. This might look good on a size 0 model in a luxurious fabric. MAYBE. Certainly not on me.

Sorry but I would not wear something like this at all!

When my brother was little he followed around after my dad. One time my brother messed his pants and Dad didn't have a replacement so he grabbed a paper bag and tied it onto him. I would imagine it looked something like this skirt. Fashion isn't high enough.

have another glass of wine luv

Looks so cheezy. Sorry, but it looks like someone took a piece of fabric and sewed the end together. Not very flattering!
