A few weeks ago I shared a project my friend Valerie was working on. A skirt for which she was inspired by my RTW inspiration pictures that I have in the sidebar (different set now). Today she sent me some pictures of the result. And wow, do I like this skirt. I want one myself. She managed to align all these (slippery) ribbons perfectly in the side seams and the skirt in general has very good fit.
She finished the waist with petersham, which was sent to her from Belgium, this internet sewing world is amazing. Thanks M.
Update: the original skirt was from Akris, I can't find this skirt at the online stores any more, but certainly some great styles to be found.
The Dutch team will start the final World cup game in just 15 minutes. And while I’m not a football fan and am one of the very few Dutch people not at a television screen tonight, I do hope they win: HUP HOLLAND.
Update: we didn't win. It's quiet in the streets (it sure wouldn't be had we won) DH and our children are very disappointed.
