If you haven't picked up a copy of my book yet run over to Sew 4 Home because they're doing a give away and have a nice review. I love the folks at Sew 4 Home and I'm tickled that they included my book (and the correct pronunciation of my name, thank you Liz!) on their blog since, technically, a skirt is not a home project. They're drawing a winner on the 31st so don't wait too long!
My friend Jemellia made a gorgeous version of the Basic Skirt using Anna Maria Horners Field Study fabric. This is a great example of why fabric matters. Something as simple as the Basic Skirt looks amazing because she picked amazing fabric. Jemillia has a great eye for combining sewing patterns with the perfect fabric and you should definitely follow her blog. See the hearts? She loves it (and so do I!).
