Thanks, guys!

This is one beautiful skirt! It can be casual or dressy depending on the fabric. And I am a total tree/leaf fetish person!  Smiley

Exactly! Im more of a casual person, so this is VERY dressy for me, but it works well.

Yay! *claps* I'm so happy for many things at the moment. First of all, it's good to see you being crafty Smiley AND being crafty in a way I know more about! Yay! And second of all, this is so cute! AND it's so you! I love it! You did a great job stitching those leaves! I'm against putting a branch on I think. I like it with just the leaves. It's sort of a spinning free flowing kind of skirt, so I like the look of just the leaves-IF it wasn't flared and was more of a straight skirt, I'd feel like the skirt was more uptight and should have a branch. See, I overthought this!

I think it's really pretty  Grin

wow I'm impressed that you did the leaves "freehand". I know how hard it is to stick to a specific line with tight curves on  sewing machine. it's very cute!

I love your skirt. It looks very comfy. And has flattering lines. I would almost wear a skirt like that. It's been a very long time since I've worn one. I'm happy wearing jeans.
I like the way the leaves look like they are falling. It would work with or without a branch.

I really like the machine embroidery, and how you linked it on the waistband. I like details like that! It looks really cute!

Oh yay!  Another mod joins in the clothing board!!  You sure are a brave one to just jump in and make a skirt (I love that you figured out an inventive way to make the skirt fit without a zipper!)...

And, you have done your ginko fetish proud with your machine embroidery!

Nice job, vanillaxlight!  I do hope you will keep on sewing clothes!

so kickass! i love this skirt!

and i totally agree with faithbri, who did the thinking for me! Wink a branch wouldn't look right on such a flowy skirt, but would fabulous if you ever did a straight skirt with a similar design.

and i agree with andi sunrider about the waistband, that makes me very happy too (which is no surprise, we're the same damn person some days! Wink)
