Tartan Terror!Posted: November 3, 2013
Apologies for the radio silence. The Tartan skirt is finally finished. It was supposed to be a simple project, a lined A line skirt with invisible zip. The kind of thing most of you would run up in an afternoon, without really having to give it much thought.
Well, here she is.
Let me tell you, this stuff was pure evil to sew. It frayed like there was no tomorrow.
I got a bit confused somewhere along the line, and put the lining in ‘inside out’, so the seams are exposed on the inside, but I suppose that’s between you, me and the gatepost eh? 😉
Anyway, she comes to just on the knee, which is an exciting departure from the norm for me. I’ll be wearing her to work tomorrow, with this very T shirt, black leggings and boots. Winter is indeed upon us.
Which brings me to my sewing plans for the next few weeks. I have a skirt and two tops to sew for my mum for Christmas, plus a fleecey Mickey Mouse dressing gown for Santa to deliver to my God daughter, and ditto a fancy apron for a friend. And of course, there’s the Red Velvet Sewalong beginning soon. I’m going to be busy, so the Tweed will have to wait a bit.
