I would like to say these were easy-peasy, but I am such a poor seamstress that I cannot. I can say that the second was more than twice as quickly done than the first, and that I was not so discouraged that I don't still plan to make a couple more things for the cousins before I pop these in the mail. Or not. Depending on my mood.

I did learn two important lessons: rethread the machine after making tension changes and don't try to sew self adhesive velcro. If those seem self-evident to you, you will now understand why it would take me hours to sew such a small and simple skirt.
