    Pls could you supply the instructions for the blouse you are wearing on the skirt. As usual, you are great.

      Hi tribestrend,
      The blouse is store bought, I didn’t make it. However, it is very similar to the JJ blouse. The button closure, collar and bib are made out of satin. The bib is just the front central piece of JJ blouse cut in 2 pieces (the top piece represents a bib), and it’s pleated.

    Very classy skirt, i really love your work, you are always very creative without being exaggerated (i don’t know if i made myself clear, my English is getting worse). Your creations are always neat and wearable, which is important, because sewing is great fun, but when i can also wear my creations i’m really really proud of me! i can’t wait for the pattern you promised us ;)

    You did an amazing job — plaids are tricky — and adding the bias cut parts was a quirky and creative touch. Can’t wait to see what you make next!
