Hannah and her new skirt ...

A while ago I saw this pattern on the internet.

I don't think I have made an item of clothing since about year 8 at school in dress making but thought I'd give it a go!!

On our recent patchwork road trip I bought some fabric and after the Santa Sack yesterday I thought I would keep the sewing machine out and try the skirt!!

She seems to like it!! Anything that twirls is popular! She wont wear the miniskirts much anymore because they don't "spin"!!

I will take some more twirly ones later ... too many flies and too much sun in the backyard!

I got the free pattern ... here

I think I am going to make another one but make a few modifications ... more fabric!!

2. make the fabric around the skirt less and the length longer

3. make sure I have elastic before I make another one ... I will put that in later when I get it (she just wants to wear it now!! :-)

4. But I am going to make another one!! Stay tuned!!

Now what will I sew next ... ???
