The skirt will still need a good pressing, but I'm really happy with it so far. I like the style and the fitting was easy due to the way it was drafted. The pressing will have to wait until Monday, as I will be gone all weekend for a winter hiking seminar at the base of Mt. Washington.
Parting Shot: Embroidery. My new neice's outfit has a little embroidery to personalize it, which I was able to complete between last night and today. I promise more details on Monday, when I get back and will have time to work on the outfit.
