  1. I would love to know how to sew- those skirts are adorable! I must have been a princess in a previous life- can't sew, can't cook, can't clean-but I am very good at giving orders!!

  3. Cute skirts. I don't think my sheer curtains would work though.

  4. The skirts are great! I think I would make them if I had left over fabric from a project, I'm not sure I would go out and buy it specifically for a skirt :)
