I started working on this skirt last week after my meltdown over Si's quilt.
I received the Collette Sewing Handbook for Christmas, and while I am not a novice sewist, I really appreciate how much great information is put together in the book. I would highly recommend it! The Meringue Skirt is the first project in the book. I think the only project that isn't a dress.
When I asked Mr. Riley what he thought - he said it looked like our (old) curtains.
