Maxi Skirt

What are you most proud of? I love the way the hem looks. (Sorry no close up photos.) I used a special kind of fusible web to fuse the hem. This way, the hem was stuck in place and after I topstitched it, the hem looked really smooth and professional. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Pay attention to how much stretch the pattern recommends. If your pattern has less stretch, you'll have to go up a size before cutting out. Knits are not hard to sew, just different than wovens. Don't be afraid! They are fun!
