Lazy Monday...

I had a really lazy Monday morning (at least for one hour?) I did get up early and drop Sean off at work, but after 8 am everyone else had also left for the day, so I had a morning to read blogs, read the newspaper, etc until I needed to leave for gym at 9 am. What bliss having the house to myself and nothing urgent that needed doing... hasn't happened for a long time.

I finished my skirt today. The photo of it on the hanger does not look like much but I hope it looks finished. I even put in an invisible zipper. The yoke lining gave me some problems but mainly because I didn't follow the instructions properly. It is not perfect but I won't list the wrong bits, but be happy it is finished and I may even wear it tomorrow.
I have started on this pattern next. I am making variation C with the long sleeves in a plain black fabric. I am hoping it will go with the new skirt .
I am quite surprised at how much I am enjoying making clothes again. Certainly they still are issues and areas I need to learn more - but I feel more relaxed about the whole process. I think through quilting I have become more confident about things like needles, threads, using the machine, etc.

  1. The skirt looks good! Confidence is a huge thing - any dressmaker I have ever met is brimming with the stuff - always astounds me. Well done and look forward to seeing you in your new skirt.


Love to hear what you think...
