    Perfectly beautiful! The yoke is great! I really like the self-fringe, too. Great idea.

    Wow orchiddream!!! I agreed totally with MartinK!!! it is a beautifull skirt, but the best of all,is the lovely work you did with the fabrick, and the self made trim that you put to the pockets, add a very special touch!!!! Best wishes to you, all the way from the rainforest!!!

      I’m addicted to self made trim. I can’t resist deconstructing the fabric to see what gives it charactor. Thanks for your kind words, all the way from the rainforest. Cool!

    Thank you MartinK! It was a joy to wear this suit. Unfortunately, I finished it in February, so the wearing season was short. Next year!
