What advice would you give someone starting this project? The hemming and the bound buttonhole are the two most challenging parts of constructing this skirt. If anyone has pointers on hemming an even hem on a full circle skirt, I'll be all ears!

I will do it

Yes! You should, this was my second sewing project ever, after Diana Rupp's skirt, and I wasn't ready for the challenge of a boned dress, so this pattern is a good intro to this class. Please let me know when you've completed it, would love to see.

The skirt came out great. Did you make the blouse, it's gorgeous.
