It is great to find fellow sewers with similar tastes. We can compare notes. Your comment on Butterick 4686 makes me think of another skirt pattern I have just purchased from sewingpatterns.com (it will take some time to arrive though - they are not the fastest company - but very cheap).
It is pattern Kwik Sew 3549 and I like the look of it because I think I can just add more panels to be able to fit me. BTW - I absolutely love your version of Butterick 4683 on your blog.
