What are you most proud of? It came out supremely cute. This being my first skirt I was thrilled :o) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Know what you want as far as the fit of the skirt goes e.g. elastic band or not at the waist / with or without lining / fringe at the bottom or not / open or closed pattern / snug or loose / etc. - as these will all factor into your width/length calculations. This was done freestyle - in that I did not follow anyone's pattern. I like the fan/shell stitch, so just went that route with this skirt.
