What are you most proud of? My embroidery is very consistent and the skirt is well constructed and strong. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This type of garment takes along time - buy good quality fabric. This was not and certainly too thick and a bit stiff with not much strech recovery. To use this garment I either have to get fatter or resew the top portion of seams to take it in - so be careful in your pattern making before putting in the hours required to embelish.
