Glad to hear that it looks good!

Is there anything you'd do right off the bat if you were going to knit it again for the waist?
I ask because I'm not really experienced and I don't want to make it if it's really big in the waist - i'll have no clue how to make it smaller.

Which means it is very big in the waist. You make belt loops and run a belt through them, but it makes it bunch and it still works it way down below the belt and gapes open. So I think I'm going to pick up the stitches around the waist and knit upward and start decreasing to make it taper into a waist. That is the only problem I have with the pattern. It is a very elegant skirt and looks really professional.
