Quitterie because I liked the skirt of it very much, but eventually I had to find that I chose the wrong fabric for the bodice part. The impression of the ongoing dress looked too juvenile and I started to feel insecure. I used a yellow-ish ecru jersey for the bodice, and the dress was getting too "dolly" which I wouldn't be happy with.
Then, of course, I chopped the upper half off the skirt before I completed it!
I added a full lining and also fixed the zipper end for clean finishing. Though the dress-chopped-resulting skirt sits quite low on my waist because Quitterie is not a tight fit dress, I don't mind it at all. Actually, I like the fact that it made the skirt hem even lower.
The fabric was polyester jersey with the black flock print. I like jersey long skirts because they don't crease much (what a practical reason to tell, but it is very important to look OK after a long desk work, I know you'd agree with me). They tend to hang nicely and softly, and I love it too. This must be a very common circle skirt in the end, but it's a very happy ending to me. It's casual and pretty.

By the way, I'd like to tell you in advance that I'm not going to be available for blogging in December. I'll be traveling a lot and literally off-line in December, probably. Hopefully I can blog one more post before the next month starts, but please allow me to send you seasonal greetings now, in case I have no time to tell.
I wish you a wonderful holiday season and a long lasting happy sewing! Thanks for keeping coming back to my blog, I reaaaallly appreciate it. I wish you know how much I do.
