You do beautiful work. Everything is flawless. You know, I would have never looked twice at that pattern until I saw your skirt. Now I'm thinking maybe I need one too. It's beautiful! :o)

Lovely skirt Belinda. Re the topstitching foot 'Is it worth having and approx how much did it cost?' I may have to buy one.

Harriet, I've had my CS machine for over 3 years now and I still love it as much today as I did when I bought it. I reviewed my machine shortly after buying it. Click on my profile and look under sewing machine reviews.

Wonderful review: I feel as if I've had a good sewing lesson. Skirt is beautiful: would love to see on you, Belinda. You mentioned the Brother cover stitch machine: what model do you own, and are you happy with it? I'm constantly at odds with myself about whether I "need" a CS machine, so any imput would be appreciated. Thanks again for great review.

Cute skirt, like your changes for the waistband. Thanks for the how-to and the pictures. Great job.

Lovely skirt - I tend toward the "rectangular" also and this skirt looks very flattering!

Very nice skirt. Interesting the way the split is formed.

Beautiful skirt! I like the slit detail and the overall drape! You did such a wonderful job! Thank you for a very helpful review!

gorgeous skirt...thanks for the tip on using knits...I thought this was a knit pattern, too. I love the added waistband, too.

Fabulous skirt Belinda! You have broken your skirt drought !!! Love the design of this one.
Sew4Fun said... (2/11/07 3:03 AM) Reply
HKS, none! The fabric has a lot of lycra, so the skirt stays up on it's own.
hongkongshopper said... (2/11/07 2:09 AM) Reply
Thanks for a great review Belinda. The skirt is lovely. So, no elastic in the waistband at all?

Thanks for the instructions for your waist band, it looks very professional. Nice skirt.

Belinda your skirt looks very good and a good description of putting the changed waistband on. Look forward to seeing you in it!

Great skirt! I love the double knit. Congratulations!

Very nice Belinda and as always,extremely well sewn!

Soliel, the coverstitching ensures the waist seam stays in place (folded down) and also makes it flatter.
Soliel said... (2/10/07 10:21 PM) Reply
I learned a lot from your waistband instructions. Does the top stitching have a function or is it simply to make your skirt look more professional? I like it, it definitely does not look homemade.
