It's just a little below knee length, and I think that's OK. Today I paired it with a floral jacket I bought from Anthropologie a few years ago. The red flowers in the jacket aren't quite the same red as the skirt, but I like them together anyway - I tend to like red and brown together.
After I ran it through a warm wash cycle a couple times, the fabric did shrink a little and soften up, so I'm really liking the skirt now. But next time I do it, I'll make sure to use a lighter-weight fabric.
It's been so long since I finished this that I don't remember any of the construction particulars - sorry! The only thing I remember is that my waistband came out too short. I later learned that I should have eased the skirt into the waistband more than I did, so I'll keep that in mind next time.

Is anyone else planning to make this pattern? Melizza made a super-cute one in kelly green. I've been looking all over for kelly green fabric to make some pants (or another Ginger) and boy, is that a hard fabric to find! So far I'm striking out!
