Yesterday was apparently Skirt Day for both Maggie and I. Perhaps if we ask really nicely she will show us what she did too :-)
On this end, I got it in one piece, gathered and stitched it into the waistband. There is a great deal more to do, but it is now actually a dress!
(That side back seam is going to get some more attention, but first I need to try it on and see how everything is fitting with the weight of the skirt.)
