What are you most proud of? i bought an invisible zipper foot before making this skirt. the zipper turned out better but i didn't get as close as i could have to the teeth. 3rd times a charm i guess!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? starting this particular skirt/project, i would watch the entire class all the way through (all of the tutorials) take good notes & then start the project. this way you already have an idea what is going to happen & you can refer to your awesome notes if you get stuck or jump to that chapter.

i want to take this class.....where can you find her book with the patterns? and can the skirt be made larger, i think i read that she goes over how to make smaller if needed, but not larger? thanks!
