Pleased with me September 19, 2008

CJ is!

She wanted a simple black skirt to wear for a special ‘dress up’ day at school today. She used to have a nice black peasant style skirt, but out grew it.

Using this pattern I was able to knock one up in a few hours last night.

She requested that I not show her face this morning as she hasn’t done her hair yet lol

I’m rather pleased with the result. She’s more than pleased with the result and has already decided that she needs more of them, in other colours.And pyjama’s. And tops. And dresses. And. And………

I guess I’d better get to work on cleaning out our junk room so I can set my sewing gear up properly on the big table in there.

I used to sew clothes for me and the kids, then materials and patterns got more expensive and it was cheaper and easier to buy them. Now my machine is only used to patch the knees of my jeans or to hem stuff like tablecloths and curtains. Occasionally worn out bathtowels will be ripped into squares which are then hemmed and used as cleaning cloths.

Ooops, forgot to say, nice skirt.
