I completed my third skirt for the Hundred Skirts Project, Garden Party. I am not loving it. That being said, it has flowers and pink ric-rac, so I'm sure that there's a little girl at The Shadow of His Wings orphanage in Guatemala who will love it.
There are a couple of things about the skirt that I do love, such as the pockets. I like these so much, in fact, that I'm hanging onto my template so I can use it again.
I also like the way I placed the ric-rac so that it's only partially showing. I copied this idea from Bloom's Fabric Obsession, where she used it to good effect on 50s-inspired pockets to dress up a simple skirt. Placing the ric-rac like this did entail some hand basting, but these skirts are so small, it really doesn't take any time at all.
