What I finished this week! (Those of you who follow me on twinstagram will have ready seen this and I'm sorry to bore you!)
Isn't she pretty? I've wanted a red gingham circle skirt for ages now. But thick cotton gingham seems to be fairly expensive. So I've bitten the bullet and gone for polycotton instead. It'll mostly be worn over a petticoat anyway!
Things started off rough as I was determined to sew it in a day for the Jazz Club summer party to go as a picnic blanket! (It was that or a bathing suit. Go figure!)
Could I get this dear sewing machine to work. Nope. Nothing. Just backward needle thread stitching. Turns out I had the needle threaded the wrong way. Doh.
Instruction booklets are a god send!!
Just look at the cute buttons on the waistband! Strawberries!
To go with the picnic theme you see. Incredibly organised for me really considering I completely forgot a button for the last skirt!
Ah well. Still learning! I'm thinking something music themed next!
Wish me luck on the hunt for bargain fabric!
P.S. where do you find your bargains? Sewn anything lately?
