thank you! i always seem to forget to press as i sew and i will definatly keep that in mind from now on. i LOVE the idea of matching the cross from the suit onto the skirt. that would look FANTASTIC!! i think i'll give everything a final press now, just to help it look crisp. & the piecing is a bit off, i think i'll redo it if i'm chosen. thanks again for your replys and critisim!
