Seriously, I know, its just a skirt and its not like it takes a University degree to make one but I am so excited its not funny LOL I'm going to drive everyone nuts around here, i'm sure of it!
So after much dismay wondering when we were going to get a new sewing machine to get it finished, the wonderful Universe once again provided for us and I have been able to finish off the skirt today.
I top stitched all of the seams, then finished off the side seam. Turned the hem and then had to wait for Master P to wake up to measure his belly for the elastic LOL Yes I know, sounds odd right? But the Little Miss who this skirt is for is about the same size as he is, so Master P became the model for the afternoon. I did have one unpick session though. Mum and I thought that it would be ok to do the hem in white thread, but once it was finished, it just didn't look completely right, so I unpicked and re-did it in black. Much better!!
Anyway... drum roll please.........
Have had to stop for the night because I need to wash the fabric incase it runs onto the top when its washed. But stay tuned for more updates as I continue with the outfit!
