My cousin is turning 28 this Saturday and for the past few years, I've tried to make her stuff for her birthday and other holidays... mostly because I'm poor and or was in school, etc.

This is what I came up with for her birthday (it's not quite finished.... I couldn't help but post)
It's my first embroidery project (freehanded...woo hoo!!).  Finished size is about a Gap size 10, it zips in the back and has the same pleats, minus the embroidery on the backside.

I hope she likes it!!!  What does anyone think??

I like the design a lot. It's very professional-looking. The embroidery is great for freehanding it! I bet your cousin will love it. Smiley

Oh my GOSH!  That skirt is fantastic - I love it!  I'm sure your cousin will love it.  What a great idea to have the contrasting fabrics.  Your embroidery is really cool. 

When you say freehand, do you mean with your machine?  What kind of thread is that?  Very, very cool. Please post a finished pic when you are done!!

Thanks!  I just took pictures of the finished skirt, so I'll post them when I come home from work tonight.  The design I drew freehanded and then hand-embroidered it, partially on 2 subway rides.  The skirt was also my pattern, something I had floating around in my head.   Cheesy
