To anwer a couple of questions - the twin set if actually from Weekenders - their Fall 2004 line - it's the black key-hole t-neck shell and the ruffle edged cardigan. It's that stretchy "travelers" fabric they have at Chico's too. Also the fabric usually comes on the "cheap" from Pacific Fabric & Iron Works (yep, you can get fabric, notions, AND an outboard motor and industrial size fishing bouys at the same place) on 4th Ave in Seattle. They have 5 yd "chunks" of stretch velvet on a regular basis for about $4.99 a yard. Some of it absolutely gaudy - but I'm sort of a "more is MORE" kinda gal, so it's very fun.

Wow, another fabulous creation. I've always thought LH patterns too simplistic to be stylish, but not anymore!

Beautiful skirt. I have to say that this is also my favorite skirt pattern.

This is beautiful! I love the twin set as well. I have this pattern, but haven't tried it yet. You have convinced me to dust it off and make it!

Gorgeous skirt, JoLo! I really like the sweater set too.

HI JoLo, I've been enjoying your reviews with all the stretch velvets, one of my favorite fabrics too. It must have stopped raining long enough to capture all your photos in your beautiful back yard. I was up in the Seattle-Tacoma area last week for the first time and had to marvel at the changeable nature of the weather. I'd love to see some of your other versions of this. The proportion of skirt to flounce can be so widely varied, making this pattern really versatile. I loved the way you put the flounce on the dress as well.

Beautiful. Love the fabric. What's your favorite source for stretch velvet?
