Laura bought the kit to make the Alabama Chanin Bloomer's Swing Skirt because she loved the idea of hand stitching an entire garment and just had to give it a try. We are SO glad she did because it is so stunning! The kit contains the directions, fabric, thread, and everything needed to complete the project. The fabric is pre-printed for the cut-outs to make your job even easier! Laura became so addicted to hand stitching after completing this project that she immediately began another hand stitched skirt. We think these are so cute and can't wait to give them a try ourselves!
