I love long seams. They take so little time and effort to do and yet you get big results!
Of course, now comes the fiddly bits that take SO long! There is a crap load of hemming to do and ruffles to attach to the lining (the ruffles hold the skirt hem out in a flare)…. Will I get it done on time? I may cheat and machine sew the hem on the lining and the ruffles. No one will see those.
