What a cute skirt. I don't know how I missed this review before. Just saw it on the side bar. What creativity. You have inspired me to try this pattern.

Eli - Thanks for the review... great skirt! I am currently making the skirt in a light pink and fushia stretch twill. I am going to make just as the pattern, but how did you go about putting the trim in the horizontal section between the main piece and the bottom piece?? It looks so cute and I think it would add a nice touch to my skirt.

Eli, you have a beautiful skirt. It's easily at the same level or higher as those offered by the top, priciest designers. Wear it proudly!

Darling skirt! I wonder if the belt were washed and got a bit of ravels if it my look less home made? The photos make it look great! Loretta

I would never have considered making this skirt, but your version is so fabulous that I'm going to give it a second look. I love the combination of fabrics you used and created with the bleach. So very creative! I think the belt is what makes the skirt. You must wear it.

Eli, another job well done. Your creativity is enviable. I think you should be on the next season of Project Runway- I'd buy your stuff!

Very cute skirt! I like the belt. I doesn't appear homemade to me. I looks like the look in the stores. I love the fact that you recycle fabric and make it look good the 2nd time around.

What a fun skirt. I like all of your details, particularly the unfinished hem.

I saw this pattern and was interested in making it. You did a grat job with the details. I am inspired to add some details when I make this skirt. Thanks for the review.

Marita, I first basted the trim to the middle section and then treated it as one when atatching the top and bottom parts.

Eli, I like it very much, although I wouldn't make it either for my own use, but your project is very inspirational, did you attach the trim on the upper(darker) part first and then attach the lover part (light) to the rest of the, skirt or how? Thank you for this review.
