What a nice sister. Very nice. I never know what to do with trim, so it is useful to see such a perfect application of it.

Your skirt is gorgeous and one of the most beautifully constructed garments I've seen. Love the lace.

I LOVE your use of the plaid with an unexpected touch of lace. It really makes this skirt special. And what's the odds of finding, much less HAVING, lace that is such a perfect match? You've got one lucky sister! I LOVE this whole pattern. It's in my stash, too. Of course, I'm probably just wishing I could wear that white suit as beautifully as the model does. :o)

Very cute skirt, and the lace adds that really special touch - and the sewing/workmanship is just exquisite, truly lovely. Thanks for the review!
