Her post about the skirt: FO-Ginger

What kind of fabric did you use? For this Ginger I used a cotton blend floral jacquard print fabric.

How did you decide to reflect your personal style in the pattern? I like classic lines that I can jazz up with interesting prints and textures. The A-line style was very flattering for my frame, especially as a new Mom still working on getting rid of my baby weight.

What thoughts do you have about the project? I love the ease of this skirt and how fast it went together. This was my first time using piping and I loved the results. I felt perfectly put together at work wearing this skirt, which prompted me to make a second version and to buy material to make three more!

Thanks, Susan!
