Yeah, I have completed my picnic blanket skirt, I was determine to complete the skirt on Labor Day, mission accomplished, I completed it late last night, and woke up early next day to take the photo outside before I dash off to work.
I learned so many new techniques making this skirt, gathering, buttonholes, attaching a waist band, and creating the placket, whew!! what a trip, but so well worth it.

I found the thought of making the buttonholes a tad bit intimidating, but until you make one you can never know the feeling when you know, you got this.
The seersucker material was a bit stretchy and light so I used some woven fusible interface on wrong side of the fabric to reinforce the back of the buttonhole, and that made creating the buttonhole much easier.
