What materials did you use? 100% organic cotton, 2 layers, black facing and white faded dots on the bottom Button craft thread and fold over elastic. I purchased the DIY swing skirt kit from AC. Now I need a top!

What are you most proud of? I was not sure if I would really like the whole process of working on a large project such as the coat so I wanted to start with something smaller. As it turned out I really loved the whole experience and am excited about starting some other things. I do believe that this is a technique that I will continue to incorporate into my sewing repertoire. I think what I am happiest about is the knowledge acquired to enhance and change other knits for a more customized look.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start small and work your way up. I found all the hand sewing really relaxing and was a little sad when I was finished. So gratifying.

This is beautiful and a very nice color combination~ If you get a chance a closeup would be nice.

This looks like one of AC's original skirts. Beautiful. The kits are so enticing.
