What are you most proud of? I have recently noticed skirts with this v-stripe, and I'm so excited that I made my own! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Cutting out this pattern was a headache! As you can see in the last photo, I lined up the stripes at a 45 degree angle, so they would match in the middle at a 90 degree angle. I drew some of the stripes on the pattern so they would meet. I also had to flip the pattern upside down to cut 2 of the pieces. The waistband is a turquoise interlock that matches the stripe.
