What are you most proud of? Like Diana, I can be over-eager and make mistakes so I was patient and took my time. I'm proud that I made a toile - I then had confidence that the finished garment would fit and this meant that I worked on the real thing slowly and carefully. I'm also pleased with the fit and the effect of the contrasting lining and waistband.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the course all the way through, then watch each section before you start to sew. Take your time and follow the excellent instructions. Unpick and restitch anything you're not happy with. Follow Diana's advice and enjoy every step of the process.

Very nice, I like the fact that you used the bias tape as a detail at the top of the skirt and I like the fun fabric.
