Sewing is not for the faint of heart

Let me see if this will work...

Newbie here, so please excuse the posting mess.

I am not 100% satisfied with the results. Especially the lining hem. What do you think?

I think I might add another row or two of the ruffle down the front, so it looks a bit more deliberate. 

I can't really see your hem to see a problem.  It just looks to me like something that could be tidied up in ironing.

I think this will be cute when worn.

I can't see any problems with the hem in your pics so I'm not sure where to advise. I do like your color/pattern combination. The skirt is really cute!

Began teaching myself to sew and design in Aug '09...one dress at a time!

I don't see hem issues either so I can't help with that.  I can tell you that I love your color choices!

Thanks for the replies. Glad you can't see the hem. I guess it is true, that you are your own worst critic!

Have yet to wear the skirt on DD yet, so hopefully it will be cuter when worn.
