You're very talented! I love the skirt.

From the book Godless:

Just Al: I know that God is real. I feel his presence in my heart
Me: What does it feel like?
Just Al: It's hard to describe Jason. It feels good.
Me: Oh. I thought maybe it was like heartburn or something.

Thanks!  Grin

Juniper did great with her tutorial for the skirt. Silly me had been looking for a pattern for a 6-panel skirt (I have ones for 4 & 8 ) but never realized that drafting one would be so simple.

I love the colors too, though I'm still on the fence about the color blocking on the top.  Undecided

wow you did an amazing job! this is a complete outfit and it's done so well!  As I said before this is going to be so hard to vote!

wow, nobody mentioned the shirt yet, and that's my favorite!  Although the bag is definitely sweet too.

thanks Thumbelina!

It is Kwik Sew #2694 without the sleeves, and color blocked (just had to make the back piece into 2 pieces), and to save fabric I did a mock overlap (originally the two front pieces are the same and overlap, for mine I cut one at an angle and sewed it to to other front - same effect basically since when I've used this pattern before I've sewn the overlap shut so I don't flash everyone)

The great attention to detail really caught my eye.  The buttons on top of each godet.  The fine finishing - everything is topstitched so neatly, cleanly and edges have a nice press.  Great details on the bag - the mix of fabrics blends so well.  The overall look is fab and so toghether.  It is bright and spritely, just right for a pixie!  Best wishes on getting the head-band to work as you desire.  It sounds like a cool accent for the outfit.  Oh, a thought , if you have enough fabric left - a triangle head scarf with a bias tie would also be a fun head piece.

OMG I have the pillow cases to match that skirt if you ever want to make a hat or something. Wink
