So, I’ll admit it. I’m getting slightly addicted to sewing. And I can’t sew. Remember that. However, a couple of my online friends have been sewing up a storm and I have decided to join the movement. Thanks Dana & Kathy!
So, here is a skirt that I tried from a tutorial that I got here . She did and absolutely fantastic job of explaining things, I just did a fantastically horrible job of following directions. However, I love my version of the skirt and will be wearing it out during our cruise to the Bahamas. I after all made it. And it fits, and it has elastic in the waist, so I can eat just a little bit more. *BONUS*
Here is another skirt that I just made, and I kind of pieced things together. Mr. Nicholes and Mor-Mor (that’s my mother – remember) helped me out with it. I got the gas face from my mom because as usual, I started something without having all of the items that I wanted (this time it was a zipper) and had to figure out a different way of doing it. No need to worry, I’ll be off to JoAnn Fabric’s later today to get more fabric AND a zipper to make another version of this skirt sans the elastic. However, elastic is your friend. It’s wonderful, no matter how toddler like you may feel in it.
So here’s THAT venture into adventures in sewingland:
I think that I did an okay job. What about you guys?
Help me out here and link to some sewing projects that you’ve recently done. I think that I’m starting to like this enough to go into doing a pair of pants for myself. *bites nails*
