Cheetah Skirt Done!

I am done with my skirt and am quite happy with it. I used an old Vogue pattern that my mom had bought me about five years ago at a garage sale (I knew there was some reason I was keeping it). It is made from cotton with a cotton underlining to give it some structure.

Here is a pic. of the kick pleat. I used a Hong Kong technique to finish the edges and like the way it looks.

I want to join the chorus in praising our blog hosts! This was fun. I am a pretty prolific knitter, but never seem (no pun!) to finish my sewing projects. A little deadline and some community support was all I needed! I can't wait for the next project. I would like to do another skirt. Does anybody know what is next?
