I just commented back on the questions and comments on my post, "It's in", so if you wrote me there, then you have a little note waiting for you. :)
Also, there's something I wanted to share with my sewing friends... I know many of you probably already read "Feelin' Feminine", so may already have seen this, but in case you don't, here's an interesting tutorial on how to add fabric to a slit in a skirt. I've tried sewing slits up before and then was not able to walk in the skirt, so this looks like a great solution to the problem!
