this cherry print gingham fabric is super cute,
I made this skirt for a friend but now I think I want one for myself.

gave myself a bit of a challenge with this one - I've never used binding before but I think it went pretty well,
I've learnt something about a new technique so that's always a positive Smiley

That binding is very smooth.

thanks,
the first stitching line was showing through in some places so I just unpicked it and the top stitching on the front held through both layers (and the skirt fabric) so its all good
