Just one small problem, I couldn't get it past my knees... Fortunately I have some rather petite friends. I gifted this skirt to a friend who, among other awesomeness, just happens to wear pencil skirts fantastically. She is approx two sizes smaller than me in RTW and the skirt fits her like a dream.
After my experience I sent an email off to TMF detailing my troubles. They replied saying that they are continuing to develop and improve the instructions and thanked me for the feedback. While I'm shattered the skirt doesn't fit, I'm glad it fits a friend and also that Heather and Harrison were so receptive of my feedback. I will definitely try this skirt again. Next time I'll use a heavy knit and try the size large. Another option might be to go a size larger and insert a side zip if using a woven fabric.
