What a fantastic job you did--the design, the construction, the result. Gorgeous. I admit that were I to copy you, I would applique instead of insert simply to save time, but the result would not be the same I'm sure. I'd go more for the effect. You're very inspiring!

Impeccable everything - taste, handwork, machine stitching, lining. Actually, it looks museum quality to me. One of the most amazing creations I've ever seen here.

Birgitte, what you've done to this simple pencil skirt is glorious! Your insertions are exquisite, as is your hand detail work. Oh and needless to say, you look smashing in your creation, which exceeds the beauty of the Gucci inspiration skirt. (Love your hot granny shoes.) With your superb instructions in hand, I see some insertions in my future. Lovely, Lily
