It took less than hours, and that included drafting the pattern pieces onto the fabric and researching how my machine makes button-holes. LOL!! I am going to draw up the pattern onto lightweight sew-in vilene so I can pin it on next time. Yes, there will be a next time. I love this skirt!!
And... I appliqued Santa onto his background, although it is not yet a little quiltlet ready to hang. Still, there's always another day.
I am going to make more of these skirts. I will keep you posted.
