Lovely skirt. You've inspired me. I bought PMB recently and haven't leaned to use it. You've shown how creative you can be with the program. Good job.

I love this skirt, and you are really making that PMB software work for you! This is just beautiful, and I love your faced hem and waistband. Very nice with your new jacket as well.
