Just amazing. Thanks for the zipper tip and especially the Hong Kong Underlining tip.

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.

Birgitta, this turned out amazingly and your craftsmanship is flawless. Could you please put on a few pounds so that your clothes will fit me and I can go over and steal them???

Another masterful creation from Birgitte's atelier! Incredible, beautiful skirt, impeccable detail, as usual. I always learn so much from your reviews, Birgitte, your projects just blow me away! Thank you for sharing them with us.

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
