I am so pleased with this skirt and I think the reason (apart from the miles of gorgeous fabric) has to be my discovery of French seams. I will never make an outfit again without them. If you are unused to home-sewn items they don't usually look as neat inside as shop bought clothing that has been overlocked. I was drooling over the overlockers in John Lewis the other day, but now I'm thinking twice.
The pattern for this skirt is Vogue V8882 and the fabric is Flea Market Fancy by Denyse Schmidt
