You make the most inventive clothing of anybody on this site!! I LOVE this skirt and I admire your fortitude with so many steps and so much time and effort involved in creating the design and the actual sewing. Well done!

You are so creative. What a fabulous skirt. I bet you'll get a ton of compliments when out walking around in it. You might have already seen it, but if you're looking for ideas for what to do with the scraps left over from between the "strips", I love this idea here: neck warmer

I seem to have thoroughly messed up the link. You can find it at It's the post from 1 Feb 2012 for a neck warmer. Sorry!

Great skirt! I love your combination of the fabric's smaller pattern with the basketweave and topstitching "checks"!

This is absolutely amazing! It looks even better than the original inspiration. :D

You're an excellent seamstress and humorous also.

Very cute! And definitely not a Xena Warrior Princess cheerleader skirt (that made me laugh!).

Great job from beginning to end. The planning, designing, execution. It looks great and should be a real source of satisfaction.
