I think the warm, sunny, Spring time weather that we’ve had recently is what has given me an urge to do some sewing. Now those of you who regularly read my blog will know that sewing scares me. But it’s something I want to get to grips with and finally master (well become competent at it anyway!)
And here’s the result:
The instructions that come with the pattern are good and the pattern pack also includes the instructions for making a layered skirt and an apron. I might well try the layered skirt next. I’ll need to do some sewing again soon, to make sure I don’t forget how to do it! I think I should have taken step-by-step photos to remind myself of what I did at each stage.
I didn’t know how to put in a zip, and the pattern asked for an invisible zip which I didn’t have, so I asked Mum to help me with that bit. Otherwise I did it pretty much by myself, which is a massive achievement for me. And I did it in a weekend too.
