my stash-busting weekend) and I almost love it. Queen Anne's Lace is one of my favorite flowers, and I'm happy with how that embroidery turned out. But I'm not 100% sure about the crocheted hem. I used this tutorial from You Go Girl! and I love the scallops, but I'm not sure about the blanket stitch used to anchor the crochet. It just feels a little. . . much. I'm going to try this again (Jo's already asking for it on a skirt for her) but this time I'm going to try a 1/2 inch backstitch right on the bottom fold line. We'll see. For now - I have a pretty new skirt to wear in Japan - and the only thing I had to buy was elastic.
