  1. I love the yellow. I was just watching the finale to the Biggest Loser and Jillian had on a yellow skirt and top and I had color envy. It is only worse after seeing your lovely skirt.

  2. This is stunning. Is the weather cooperating so you can still wear it? g

  3. Very pretty, love the yellow. It was worth the wait and the yellow so trendy, you will be styling, Sharon! (as always).

  4. Gorgeous color skirt and you found the perfect scarf to go with it.

  5. Such a fresh colour. Love the needle work too.

  6. its really beautiful. love the color.

  7. I love the stitch detail. Very lovely.

    Beautiful skirt in a cheery color for spring/summer. I like the contrast stitching.

  9. LOVE a yellow skirt, and I just adore that topstitching. I wore my yellow ponte skirt all winter....just may have to come up with a spring/summer version...with topstitching! (hehehe)

    It may have taken a while but it was so worth it. I love the colour and think that you've done a great job.

    I choose to have several projects on the go at once so sometimes it does take me a while to get them finished too. This is just the way I like to work as I can pick up whatever takes my fancy, depending on the tme I have available.

    You've inspired me to get on with another skirt now . . . It may be ready by Christmas ;p

    This is a very nice dress and I think is cheaper than it would’ve been to purchase it. Also it is nice to make it yourself, that way you can wear exactly what you like and have the satisfaction of seeing the results of your work. Congratulations, it’s gorgeous.
