Hi! Congrats on your 200th post! My favorite "item" is your "color style" and use of fabrics.

My two girls looked fantastic over the holidays in the skirts you made. I even got inspired and bought a bunch of fabric and did my fist hand sewn skirt for them. Very fun.

Thanks for entering me in your contest.

I just found your blog through Jona at Stop Staring! Your designs are so inspiring! I love the idea of the yoga top skirts - I have liver disease and the swelling is so uncomfortable on bad days - elastic is like a sharp knife some days! I am going right now to my fabric stash and see if I can find some ribbing to alter a skirt for bad days - thanks so much!
