From Kristin:  Michelle is one of those people that hardly needs an introduction–so many of you know her well from her wonderful blog, Green Kitchen.  She is one of those people that makes the crafting blogosphere feel like a true community, always responding with a kind comment, a follow-up email, or a link to a blog post somewhere else that is just the information you were looking for.   For awhile now she’s been whipping up beautiful skirts for herself and her family, so I asked her if she’d give us a little lesson.  Coming right up is her great tutorial on how to set a zipper in a skirt.  You should also visit her Flickr set for images and tips of the entire skirt construction process. 

From Michelle:  A crafty childhood, an art degree, a career in graphic design, and intermittent small bits of time all add up to my current crafty, at-home-mom self. I live in coastal California with two active boy children, my husband, and my mom. Our three-generation household is packed with crap — I mean craft. I try to keep the stacks from blocking the windows completely so we can still see daylight.
