    I made one of the denim skirts, and I love it. I get compliments each time I wear it, and it's fun to tell people I made it when they ask where I got it. The book has also given me other ideas about things I can do. The gals who wrote the book are silly, and I regularly chuckle as I'm scanning through instructions.
