I was browsing through Sew Contempo the other day and saw the cutest skirt pattern from Favorite Things and just *had* to try it out. Wow - that was one of the easiest things I've ever made. I think the longest step was pre-wash and cutting the panels. It took me less than 2 hrs from start to finish. I know I'll be making this one again very soon! Mike took the pictures so they're not super clear - but you can get an idea. I used Ice Blue Taffy by Anna Maria Horner.
