And my first blog project is …

The Sewaholic Hollyburn skirt.

I’m making View A.

I spent a considerable amount of time enlarging this pattern to fit myself.

The fabric is a black linen mix, embroidered with a big trailing floral design in tiny white cross stitch, purchased at Jo-Ann’s whilst I was recently on holiday in the USA.  It was on sale.

I’m using a plain black cotton lawn to line it.

The fabric is pre washed and ironed, and I’m just about to read through the pattern instructions prior to cutting it out.
Wish me luck!
