Beautiful skirt. Is the book worth it for someone who is not a beginner?

It's really pretty, I love the fabric. I didn't know you could zig zag a hem on velvet. From the picture you can't even see it.

I just love your skirt, and that fabric is to die for! Kashi is the best- I need to get down to NYC to see him again soon!

Great skirt, I'm glad to hear it sewed up so well.

Thanks! Yeah, Kashi is definitely the best. I bought this fabric from him sight unseen, because he knows what I like, and he assured me I'd like this fabric. Lisette - For me, the book is 'worth it', even though I've been sewing for over 20 years. But that said, quite frankly I didn't learn a thing, techically, from the book. When I say it was 'worth it' for me, I'm talking enjoyment in reading and in following Wendy's process. Having read the book, I'd buy it again, if that helps you.

Turned out a real stunner, Barbara! Leave it Kashi to find the best fabric:-)

I'll jump on the bandwagon - great skirt, and Kashi came through once again on fabric. Both are beautiful.

Lovely skirt - great use of your fabric. Nice to hear about the book, which looks great for young people. In fact, I might get it for my niece.

I have this book too and just finished my first version of this skirt. I love this book. I'm an advanced beginner and love her explanations of things and her hip sense of style. Now I understand WHY it's so important to staystitch, etc... I also like the order in which she does the construction. It makes on-the-fly alteration really easy. BEAUTIFUL SKIRT! Everyone will want one.
