Q&A with MissCharlie

Mrs. Depew asked:
Gorgeous!!!!!! I loved how your pin tucks came out and your rosettes are so cute!
MissCharlie answered:
Thank you so much!!! Your wonderful pattern and tutorials made it easy and fun!! ;-)
KLCreations asked:
I love the colors! So beautiful (and like you said, they do remind me of Mardi Gras). You also just gave me inspiration to cut up an old, ill-fitting, brocade dress I made years ago and put the fabric to better use!!!
MissCharlie answered:
Glad to help out! It's a great way to use cool fabric that would otherwise wallow in obscurity. I love this garter belt!
