52 Projects Sunday
I'm still trying to catch up on the 52 projects challenge over at Living a slow and simple life given that I started at the beginning of week 13.
This week I finished the first version of a custom skirt pattern. I used to sew a lot when I fit retail patterns without alterations but now I am taking on the challenge of making my own pattern using the instructions and basic pattern in
and next I will make a "muslin" to see if the dimensions are correct. I have two lovely summery batik fabrics I received for Christmas and I need to get going if I am going to have skirts to wear this summer.
Keeping the sewing theme going I also mended a tear in a mattress pad and some in a set of pillowcases. I'm now at 6 completed projects.
