    Lovely work on this skirt! I love how you took a basic pattern and made it up extra nicely with hand finishings. Nice :)

      That’s great – I think it’s a great base pattern, and then you can do anything you want to it for the special touches.

    you did a great job! I am happy that you have sewn the hem by hand. It looks great!

      Thank you. I prefer to finish the hem by hand, as I think it just looks so much better :)
