One of my New Year's resolutions was to pull out the inherited sewing machine and learn how to make something other than pillows. So a few weekends ago I grabbed a pattern and a few yards of fabric and settled down for a loooong Sunday afternoon. I'll admit I did a lot of googling for terms I didn't know, but I picked a pretty basic pattern that wasn't too hard to follow. I also tried to photograph the process to share here but was quickly distracted. There's basically a picture of the pattern... and the finished product..
This skirt was my first attempt. I've actually made another one since, but it was harder fabric to work with and I'm not as happy with it. Also, it looks like its made from a 1976 tablecloth..
The long sweater (wooo cardigan) helps to hide some of my sewing sins, but unfortunately makes the pockets (yes! I made pockets!) kind of unusable. Overall I'm happy with it, its not perfect in anywayshapeorform... but it's fun to create something!
