Thank you, can't tell you how much fun I'm having experimenting with seams... Trying out a closed slot seam, but where you stitched 1/4 I'm doing 1/2 then stitching it closed 1"" down and open next inch down , making a sort of smock effect. The sample looks good, now to make a skirt!! :0)

This was a nice way to use the seminole. Really good work! I love to see the skirt to, did you finished it?

To my shame I put it in the unfinished project,,,,, but it will come out again when I stop pulling my hair out!

Great job on the blouse!!! The black/white contrast does look really nice. Too bad you had to learn the hard way how the keep your white "white", instead of turning gray. What is a "Color Catcher"??? Never hear of it, but it sounds like a useful thing to have. Where do you get it??? Keep up the good work - would love to see the skirt whenever you get it completed! Take care, Jan

Hi Jan, the colour catcher. Marvelous invention, it's just like the paper sheets that you put in your tumble dryer but they are for the washing machine. You get them in the laundry section of most supermarkets. You pop one in when you are doing your was and it helps to stop the colours bleeding into each other. My skirt will have to Waite until the spring, making things for christmas,,,,, not all of Santa's elves live in the nort pole!! ;0)

This is beautiful! What type of closure did you use? Is there a side zipper?
