We have a craft room here in out new house in Colorado Springs. I love being able to leave out my sewing machine so it is at the ready when I have a whim to sew something. I have not completed a real sewing project in lets say… a couple of years, but once I got the machine set up in the new house, I was itching to make something. I went to Joanne’s and bought some fabric and a pattern then went to my friends online to ask for opinions on length of skirt. I decided to go about knee length with a slit. I pinned out my skirt pattern on the fabric and got to work. Luckily, I had a few helpers.
The pups supported me every step of the way.
After getting the fabric ready I realized I need to clean out the oily lint from my sewing machine and re-oil the moving parts.
I decided to go with pockets on the skirt because I have grown to really like them. I think it was a good choice and kind of breaks up the front. The shirt was supposed to have ties up front, but after cutting, pinning, sewing and pressing them I decided not to use them. I also forgot to allow for the slit when I was sewing the sides and decided it was good enough with it.
I would call the project an overall success, especially since I got my feet wet with sewing again. I am going to try and use this really sweet patterned fabric I got for a dress next.
Did I mention that you can see the mountains out the craft room window? Well you can. Take that.
