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.

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

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

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.

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!

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.

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