Velvet Skirt with Side Stretch Panels

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Skirt with Side Stretch Panels Link to website or photo gjeometry.com/2013/01/18/i-want-to-be-ensconced-in-velvet/ What are you most proud of? First time sewing with stretchy fabric and with fold-over elastic. It worked out fine, although only the two side panels are the stretch knit fabric. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure the stretch panels you add have the stretch going horizontally, i.e., around your body and not vertically, i.e., up and down your body.
