Making the green skirt,

With my apologies, I’m finally getting back to you, Kerri!

The 100% cotton fabric used for this toile is not nice to the touch (bought on-line), but it’s proving to be sturdy enough for a decent evaluation of the pattern.
(Would hate to try it with a rayon, as so much of the pattern’s cut on diagonals. And we all know rayon has enough slink to make the thought of that not to everyone’s taste, particularly mine. 😉 ) But for a toile, it’s fine.
It only took three tries to get the positioning correct for those first two pieces. I hate this kind of thing, and always get the first couple of tries wrong. But I persevered (rare for me!), and got them going properly.
Next steps are ironing the seams up, and top stitching along each seam line.
This will further accentuate the lines of the pieces, and emphasize the overall design of the skirt. . .
… which initially drew me to the pattern. More anon . . . 😍
