Sewing one last time.

Here is my latest sewing - a lovely simple skirt which I hope will become a TNT.

Burda 09-2008-120. Made in a brown cotton with a bit of stretch picked up in the remnant bin. Lined with a rayon (leftover from another project).

The only silly thing I did (gee, only one - I must be getting better at this sewing thing!) was to cut the back of the skirt on the fold, so I had to put the zip into the side seam. It worked fine but I will cut the next one with two back pieces and have a center back zip.

I will be making another one of these in a gorgeous over the top floral cotton I bought recently - an ideal fun summer skirt. This brown skirt is a great addition to my work wardrobe and this colour combo of teal and brown is my current absolute favorite.

Now this blog post is called sewing one last time as I have had to pack my machine away for awhile. This is good and bad. Bad because I have to live through a renovation and good because when it is finished I will have my own sewing room!

When the builder cuts a door into the back room I hope to start sewing again but in the meantime I have reverted to crochet to keep me sane!
