Just so you knowPosted: November 30, 2013
I haven’t died.
In fact, I’ve been hard at it in the sewing room. Yesterday I made a skirt for my mum, to go with the Renfrew top. I made the same skirt for her last year in a floral print cotton jersey, this year she requested a plain black one. It’s fitted from the waist to hip, with a flared panel coming from the hip seam. Elastic waist and a lettuced hem, all done on the overlocker (serger). It doesn’t look great in this photo – partly because it’s too small for me (and Brunhilde), but it will fit mum perfectly and fall to just below the knee on her.
My next bit of Christmas sewing is going to be a cuddly red fleecey dressing gown for my little God daughter (she’s 6). Since she visited EuroDisney earlier this year, she’s been Mickey and Minnie Mouse crazy, so she’ll love this
