Your colors are just gorgeous, and I like your version much better than the original designer's!

What talent! Congratulations. It's Fabulous. I saw in on GV's blog and went looking for ribbon yesterday but to no avail.

I have been meaning to compliment you on all the grainline archers you have made so beautifully. And now I see that you have also made this skirt! Amazing talent.

The sew-along sounds fun but my plate is so full I can't commit to it...doing good to get those Archers done and filling in with a few pieces I really need. Glad to know this one wears well, though, since I may make it for a special occasion some time.

Stunning! Absolutely stunning. I want one too!

I don't think I've ever SEEN such perfection, BOTH in the skirt AND the blouse. I LOVE that picture with the light from the window backlighting the linen blouse. How INSPIRING. :O)

Your ribbon skirt is really beautiful. What a lovely job. It looks so pretty paired with the linen shirt too.

Beautiful work! It looks every bit as good as your J McLaughlin inspiration skirt. Wear it well!

Beautiful, fabulous, breathtaking those will be the adjectives used when you slip on this skirt and your white shirt. I so wish it was mine :-)

This is so gorgeous and the precision matching the sides with the zipper is extraordinary. Jstarr4250 you outdid yourself ;)

This is a gorgeous skirt, WOW!

This is so cute. I love to read your reviews. You always do such a great job. Thanks for the idea. I will definitely try this. I am almost finished my dress from the 2584 pattern. It has turned out pretty well.
Jstarr4250 said... (5/2/13 8:38 PM) Reply
I canNOT believe you said that! It's the first thing I thought of when I tried it on for the first time. It's absolutely impractical but I couldn't resist giving it a try.
ArtAttack said... (5/2/13 8:35 PM) Reply
Wow! This is breathtaking! If it were mine I would only accept invitations that were within walking distance and events where I did NOT have to sit down. It's too gorgeous to sit in!

Thank you ladies. Ntpolite, this will go to the dry cleaners. That's what the RTW version recommends for theirs.
ntpolite said... (5/2/13 7:44 PM) Reply
Beautiful! Nicely done. how will you launder the skirt?
natsew said... (5/2/13 7:30 PM) Reply
